The Gulf Cooperation Council Secretary-General Abdul Latif Al Zayani has proposed the established of a group whose function will be to monitor radiation levels in the region.
Zayani believes that the surge in the regional development of nuclear energy as a power source requires that an overseeing body be established to protect citizens and control energy producing companies.
“A technical committee has been formed to study the establishment of the center to monitor radiation resulting from nuclear expansion in the region,” Al Zayani said during his opening words at the International Security National Resilience Exhibition and Conference. The conference was held on Monday, March 19 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center.
Although no expected date for the establishment of the center was mentioned, nor a venue for it, Al Zayani was firm that such a center would surely be established by all the GCC states in the near future, for the safety and well-being of the citizens of the region.
