ABSTRACT
The article reports on the call of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano for member nations to agree to random, unscheduled inspection of all nuclear power plants. Amano states that the future of nuclear power requires tighter international safety oversight in the light of Japan's reactor disaster. The unexpected proposal came at the opening of a five-day IAEA ministerial conference on nuclear safety held in Vienna, Wien, Austria, that was convened because of the emergency at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan.
