Mr Tobias Ellwood - Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Ministry of Defence and Department of Energy and Climate Change are today publishing a report on the Governments international chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) security assistance programmes. The report summarises work and achievements under these programmes in the 2013/14 and 2014/15 financial years.

The Government is committed to improving the security of CBRN materials and expertise around the world. The programmes form the UKs contribution to the Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction, which coordinates international efforts to improve CBRN security. Over the past two years, these programmes have delivered important improvements in line with the objectives of the Global Partnership and the National Counter Proliferation Strategy 2012-2015.

Since the period covered by the report, UK-funded CBRN security programmes have continued to deliver results, including the two examples below, which demonstrate the value of the UKs programmes:

  • On 24 September 2015, Uzbekistan became a country free of High Enriched Uranium (HEU) after liquid HEU fuel was removed from a research reactor at the Radiation and Technological Complex in Tashkent. The fuel has been flown to Russia for secure disposition. Funding and expert advice to decommission the research reactor, which was a pre-requisite for the removal of the HEU, was provided by the Global Threat Reduction Programme.
  • On 22 September 2015, Russia announced that the chemical weapons destruction facility at Shchuchye had completed operations, which resulted in the destruction of 5,500 tonnes of highly toxic nerve agent contained in more than 1.9 million artillery munitions. During 2002 to 2010, the UK implemented procurement and infrastructure projects worth over 90 million at the facility: these have made a major contribution to the destruction operations there. Funding for these projects was provided by the UK, Canada, the EU, France and other donors.

The report will be published on the gov.uk website: www.gov.uk/government/publications/report-on-uk-international-chemical-biological-radiological-and-nuclear-cbrn-security-assistance-programmes
