Dr. Amano expressed his satisfaction for the visit, and as far as Argentine nuclear policies are concerned, he pointed out that “the country is well developed in atomic energy research and technology and is facing very promising new projects”. He also stressed the government’s “brave decisions” that made it possible to recover atomic development “even before its recent revival around the word”. .
