Russian President Vladimir Putin gave orders to sign the UN International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism
The document is the 13th UN convention on combating terrorism. It was drafted by Russia in 1998 and became the first convention passed by the UN at the initiative of post-Soviet Russia. The convention will be presented for signing on September 14 at the UN Summit 2005, the 60th session of the UN General Assembly, in New York. Although the convention becomes effective with 22 ratifications, a foreign ministers' session of the 55-member Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) decided to ratify it unanimously. The convention, the first international treaty on preventing nuclear terrorism, provides for civilian and military application of nuclear materials, the prevention of terrorist attacks involving homemade nuclear devices, and the prosecution of those responsible for terrorist attacks, either via extradition or by domestic courts. The convention includes legal procedures for the retrieval of stolen nuclear materials, devices, and substances. The treaty is designed for close coordination with the International Atomic Energy Agency
