Sixtieth General Assembly
On the 19th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear accident and with Chernobyl-related cancer rates predicted to peak from 2006 to 2020, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is warning that Chernobyl must not become a forgotten disaster. The Federation expressed its extreme concern that funding trends for 2006 and beyond will not allow it to continue life-saving screening for thyroid cancer in affected areas of Belarus, Ukraine and Russia and that it was essential the programme be sustained for the next 15 years.
The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan:
Today marks the nineteenth anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster, the worst nuclear power plant accident in history. Almost two decades later, the three countries most affected -- Belarus, the Russian Federation, and Ukraine -- continue to grapple with daunting social, economic, and environmental consequences.
The challenge posed by Chernobyl has evolved over time.
