UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for the demilitarization of the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia Region, Reuters reported.
According to him, military equipment and personnel should be withdrawn from the plant. He called for efforts to prevent it from becoming a target for military operations.
The facility should not be used as part of any military operation. Instead, an agreement is urgently needed to restore the purely civilian infrastructure of Zaporizhzhia and secure the area, he said at a press conference in Lviv after a meeting with the presidents of Ukraine and Turkey.
He said that the UN secretariat in close contact with the IAEA concluded that it had the logistical and security capabilities in Ukraine to support an IAEA mission to Zaporizhzhia NPP from Kiev, provided that Russia and Ukraine agree.
