Morning Memo

  • Pakistan becomes new chair of IAEA board, despite not being a signatory of the NPT and threatening to block talks on production bans on fissile materials.
  • The East European group of states will discuss candidatures at its meeting on Wednesday, 29 September 2010. They will almost certainly focus on the three seats available to the group on ECOSOC, and perhaps possible seats on the Peacebuilding Commission. There are no openings on the Security Council this year for the group.
