VIENNA - Important progress has been made towards strengthening global nuclear safety after Japan's Fukushima accident last year, according to the United Nations atomic watchdog.

The International Atomic Energy Agency made the assessment in a report prepared for next month's annual meeting of IAEA member states, which endorsed the safety plan by consensus last September despite criticism that it did not go far enough.

"Since the adoption of the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, significant progress has been made in several key areas," the Vienna-based agency said.

These included "improvements in emergency preparedness and response capabilities," it added in the nine-page document posted on its website.
