Koten and Isaaac Mundia  visited the Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology on 11th September 2018 to carry out verification activities.

The IAEA inspector are in the country through the Safeguards Agreements and Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Safeguards inspectors are an essential part of the global non-proliferation regime, carrying out verification activities, so the IAEA can provide assurances to States worldwide that other countries are not diverting nuclear material from peaceful to military purposes or misusing nuclear technology. One important activity is the inspection of declared stocks of nuclear material: the IAEA is the only organization in the world with the mandate to verify the use of nuclear material and technology globally.
