UN nuclear watchdog chief Amano dead

UN nuclear watchdog chief Amano dead

United Nations, Jul 22 (UNI) The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief, Yukiya Amano, is dead.

"The Secretariat of the International Atomic Energy Agency regrets to inform with deepest sadness of the passing away of Director General Yukiya Amano," the IAEA said in a statement.

The Agency said on Monday -- the day he was expected to announce his resignation because of an illness that visibly weakened him over the past year.

The 72-year-old Japanese diplomat had held the position of IAEA director general since 2009, taking over from Mohamed ElBaradei and steering the UN agency through a period of intense diplomacy over Iran's nuclear programme while seeking in vain to return to North Korea.

Amano had been preparing to leave his position in March, well before the end of his third four-year term, which ran until November 30, 2021.
