TCS Deputy Secretary-General BEK Bumhym also attended the meeting as an observer and delivered opening remarks.
In his remarks, DSG BEK reiterated the indispensable nature of nuclear safety cooperation, mentioning that the three countries’ geographical inseparability renders themselves collectively vulnerable to transverse consequences of a nuclear disaster.

The three agencies shared updates on the status and progress of nuclear safety regulatory activities in each country and exchanged information and experiences on topics of common interest. The next TRM will be held in China in 2023.
