Olli Heinonen Resignation

Statement on the Resignation of Olli Heinonen

By Ambassador Glyn Davies,
Permanent Representative of the United States to the
International Atomic Energy Agency and the United Nations Office in Vienna

“It is with respect and admiration that I bid farewell to Olli Heinonen.  I have great respect for Olli, and the many years of excellent service he devoted to the IAEA.  He has led a contingent of expert, dedicated inspectors who will ensure that the vital safeguards work of the IAEA will continue.  I appreciate the very fine work Olli has undertaken for the IAEA, and am confident that the Agency’s inspectors will continue that work.  I wish Olli all the best as he moves on from Vienna.”
