China attaches importance to the nuclear safety issue and supports the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) playing an active role in enhancing international cooperation on nuclear safety, a foreign ministry spokesperson said Thursday.

"China has noticed the proposal made by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano to hold a high-level conference on nuclear safety issues," Jiang Yu said at a regular press briefing.

China is studying the proposal and will maintain close contact with the IAEA on the issue, Jiang said.

Yukiya Amano announced Wednesday that he had invited member states to participate in a high-level conference on nuclear safety issues in June.

Invitations have been sent to the governments of the 151 IAEA members and the conference is scheduled to be held on June 20-24 in Vienna, Amano told the press at the IAEA headquarters.
