Government ministers and other high-level delegates are convening for a conference on nuclear safety in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster.
The conference in Vienna will gather delegates from most of the 150 members of the International Atomic Energy Agency. On the agenda will be tightening safety regulations for nuclear reactors.
There are some differences ahead of the week-long meeting opening Monday. Some countries want any new safety regime to be mandatory. The majority, however prefers them to be voluntary.
