In 2002, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) continued to act as a catalyst for the development and transfer of peaceful nuclear technologies; to build and maintain a global nuclear safety regime; and to assist in efforts to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons. In November, it resumed inspections in Iraq, ending the stalemate that had lasted since 1998. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) remained in non-compliance with the existing safeguards agreement pursuant to the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, adopted by the General Assembly in resolution 2373(XXII) [YUN 1968, p. 17]. The forty-sixth session of the IAEA General Conference (Vienna, 16-20 September) adopted resolutions on improving the security of nuclear and other radioactive materials; strengthening international cooperation in nuclear, radiation, transport and waste safety; improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the safeguards system; strengthening IAEA technical cooperation activities; applying safeguards in the Middle East; implementing the safeguards agreement between IAEA and the DPRK and UN Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq; and measures to protect against nuclear terrorism. In 2002, IAEA had 137 member States.
