 US, Korea Launch Nuclear Energy Cooperation Commission

The U.S. Department of Energy and the Republic of Korea launched a commission that would focus on nuclear security, safety, nonproliferation and clean energy between the two countries.
The High Level Bilateral Commission (HLBC) will serve as a senior-level forum to facilitate strategic dialogue and technical exchanges on peaceful nuclear cooperation. The HLBC will examine the management of spent nuclear fuel, the promotion of nuclear exports and export control cooperation, assurances of nuclear fuel supply and nuclear security.
The HLBC had been established pursuant to the terms of the Agreement for Cooperation Between the United States of America and the Republic of Korea Concerning Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, often referred to as the U.S.-ROK 123 Agreement. During a meeting earlier this month, the two countries established the structure and functions of the four working groups established in the 123 Agreement and confirmed the groups’ membership. The official task for the working groups is to develop terms of reference and work plans that will be presented to the HLBC co-chairs in April for approval.
