The 35-member IAEA board reached the decision by consensus at a meeting held in Vienna, the foreign ministry said in a press release.

Shin Chae-hyun, South Korean ambassador to Austria and the Permanent Mission to the International Organizations in Vienna, will serve as the chair for a one-year term until September 2022.

It marks the first time the country has assumed the chairmanship at the IAEA board, which is in charge of making policy, financial and other recommendations to the IAEA’s General Conference, its decision-making body.
