AELB: Malaysian personnel can handle chemical, nuke threats


Dateline 2017-02-28, Yahoo News:

 Malaysia has taken a step forward by equipping its personnel with the skills and knowledge in handling possible chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNe) threats.

Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) director-general Hamrah Mohd Ali said the agency had experts trained to handle activities or incidences, especially on radiological and nuclear threats.

“CBRNe (attacks), if they happen in our country, will be coordinated by the National Security Council, but we will take the lead as the technical agency when it is related to radiology and nuclear threats.

“We will continue to improve our knowledge on radiological and nuclear threats through continuous engagement and exercise conducted with international parties, such as the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“We also keep up with the latest and more advance technology to detect new versions of the threats,” he told the New Straits Times.
