   Vienna , AustriaMonday , September 26 , 2022 It is an honor to join this group of esteemed diplomats today . Let me begin with a message from the President of the United States , Joe Biden:This year’s General Conference arrives at a defining moment in history . We face an existential climate crisis; fast - paced technological innovation; and Russia’s brutal and unnecessary invasion of Ukraine . We can tackle these challenges by building on the work done at the Tenth Nuclear Non - Proliferation Treaty Review Conference , and working with the IAEA to promote...... nonproliferation , safety , and security standards as we advance peaceful applications of the atom . My Administration is dedicated to re - establishing U . S . leadership in nuclear energy as we tackle the climate crisis . We seek to establish the Additional Protocol as a universal standard for nuclear supply arrangements , while also limiting the spread of sensitive enrichment and reprocessing technologies . That’s why we are working closely with the IAEA to ensure that the AUKUS partnership among Australia , the United Kingdom , and the United States meets the highest nonproliferation standard . Strengthening nuclear and radioactive material security is one of my Administration’s highest priorities and I look forward to working with the IAEA to continue our collective efforts to counter weapons of mass destruction , thwart terrorism , and improve nuclear and radioactive material security practices . The United States is committed to working with partners worldwide to secure these materials and further reduce the threats of nuclear and radiological terrorism . Our efforts to promote responsible nuclear stewardship stand in stark contrast to Russia’s recent reckless and irresponsible words and actions . After weeks of good - faith negotiations from the international community , Russia blocked consensus on a final document at the NPT Review Conference . Russia’s seizure of Ukrainian nuclear facilities casts doubt upon Moscow’s commitment to the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and undermines its credibility as a nuclear energy supplier . And the Kremlin has repeatedly made overt nuclear threats against Europe . My Administration reaffirms our support for Director General Grossi’s Seven Pillars of nuclear safety and security , and we call on Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from Ukraine—and cease military activity at and near Ukraine’s nuclear facilities . I am grateful for the professionalism and dedication of Ukrainian operators at the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant and for their efforts to ensure the plant remains safe under difficult circumstances . In this time of great upheaval , we must provide unequivocal support—through our words and our resources—for the international nonproliferation regime and for the IAEA’s indispensable role in addressing global challenges . The Biden - Harris administration believes that our collective climate security and energy security will grow alongside innovation and expansion in civil nuclear power . Nuclear offers our best source of carbon - free baseload power today . It is safe , clean , and reliable . Advances in nuclear technology will help us increase global energy capacity to meet rising electricity needs without fossil fuels—clearing a pathway to a net - zero world . And for those countries held hostage by Russian fossil fuels right now , nuclear power—freed of Russian supply chains—is part of the solution to sever that dependence . That is why President Biden’s agenda invests billions in the U . S . Department of Energy to ramp up development and demonstration of next - generation reactors . We look forward to showcasing our efforts for all of you at the IAEA’s fifth International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power next month in Washington , D . C . Of course , as we encourage an expansion of civil nuclear power , the United States will also uphold the highest standards of safety , security , and nonproliferation . In that spirit , I will close by reiterating our unwavering support for the Government and the People of Ukraine , and our commitment to the safety and security of Ukraine’s nuclear facilities amid Russia’s barbaric invasion . I wish all delegations well as we work to strengthen the role of the IAEA , preserve our shared values , and prepare for a new generation of peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology . ###
