Rafael Grossi, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), addressed the danger of nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine in an interview with FRANCE 24 from Vienna. "We expect that no use of a nuclear weapon whatsoever will take place in this or in any other conflict," Grossi said when asked about recent threats by Moscow. He went on to call the situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant "very precarious", adding that he was still hoping for a deal on the establishment of a demilitarised safe zone around the plant. "We need to do this now. It's not impossible, we have a credible, viable proposal on the table," he said.
