Romanian diplomat Cornel Feruta appointed acting head of International Atomic Energy Agency

Romanian diplomat Cornel Feruta has been appointed acting head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), following the death of Yukiya Amano, the Reuters news agency informs.

“The Board of Governors has decided to designate Mr Cornel Feruta as acting Director General until a Director General assumes office,” the International Atomic Energy Agency said on Thursday.

The IAEA announced on Monday the death of Director General Yukiya Amano, a situation that created a leadership vacuum within the United Nations-affiliated organisation, against the backdrop of the crisis sparked by U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the nuclear agreement that the great powers had signed with Iran.
