On January 29, 2014, President Obama submitted to Congress for its review a proposed Third Amendment to the Agreement for Cooperation between the United States of America and the International Atomic Energy Agency. The original Agreement entered into force on August 7, 1959, and was amended on May 31, 1974, and May 6, 1980. Under the proposed Amendment, the term of the Agreement would be extended an additional forty (40) years for a total term of ninety-five (95) years.

The newly amended Agreement would allow the United States and IAEA to continue their decades of nuclear cooperation. It would continue to provide a comprehensive framework for peaceful nuclear cooperation with the IAEA and facilitate our mutual objectives related to nonproliferation and the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The Agreement exemplifies the U.S. Government’s strong support for IAEA peaceful uses activities, and the United States looks forward to expanding these cooperative efforts in the years to come.
