In 2001, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) continued to focus on bringing about the development and transfer of peaceful nuclear technologies; building and maintaining a global nuclear safety regime; and guarding against the proliferation of nuclear weapons and strengthening the security of nuclear material and facilities. After the terrorist attacks of 11 September in the United States, IAEA intensified its action to upgrade nuclear safety and security. The forty-fifth session of the IAEA General Conference (Vienna, 17-21 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 Democratic People's Republic of Korea; and implementing UN Security Council resolutions relating to Iraq. In 2001, IAEA membership rose to 133 with the admission of Botswana and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
