U.S. to Ratify Additional Protocol

A few days ago , Bush “signed the instrument of ratification”:http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2008/dec/113550.htm for the Additional Protocol to the U.S. IAEA safeguards agreement which, some of you may recall, the Clinton administration signed in 1998.

Some of you may also recall that the administration has been all about urging everyone else to conclude additional protocols.

Anyway, according to the State Department, “ratification will be completed with deposit of the instrument with the IAEA” – an event which should happen sometime this coming week.
