    Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that Russia has developed strong capabilities in cancer control and capacity building.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — Russia has developed strong capabilities in cancer control and capacity building, Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told Sputnik Thursday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    "Cancer control, capacity building, these are very strong points of your country," Amano said.

    According to the IAEA, capacity building is a systematic and integrated approach aiming at improving the governmental, organizational and individual capabilities necessary for achieving a safe, secure and sustainable nuclear power program.

    The St. Petersburg forum, running June 18-20, is held under the auspices of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The forum has taken place annually since 1997 and positions itself as a unique growth and stability network for emerging economic powers.
