CHERNOBYL - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, speaking at the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, said on Tuesday that he wanted new world rules covering safety at nuclear plants.

"Today, I sent proposals to (world) leaders ... aimed at guaranteeing the necessary development of nuclear energy in the world while preventing at the same time catastrophic global consequences (of accidents)," he said.

Medvedev said the 1986 Chernobyl accident had also offered the lesson to states that they must tell people the truth about nuclear accidents. "We must give absolutely accurate information about what is happening," he said.
