His Excellency President Yanukovych, His Excellency Prime Minister Azarov,
Ladies and gentlemen,
I consider it particularly significant to hold a nuclear summit here in Kyiv in this year marking the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident.
First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude and respect to those who have contributed to arranging this important event, especially to the Government of Ukraine.
Kiev, Ukraine, 19 April 2011
Your Excellency, President Victor Yanukovych,
Distinguished Heads of State and Government,
Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen,
I thank President Yanukovych for his vision in organizing this conference long before issues of nuclear safety made it back to the world's front pages.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Twenty-five years ago, the explosion at Chernobyl cast a radioactive cloud over Europe and a shadow around the world.
