      The IAEA is responsible for the international safeguards system. Visits to nuclear facilities by IAEA inspectors are the cornerstone of the system. At best it is an audit system involving periodic inspections of some nuclear facilities. At worst, IAEA safeguards are tokenistic (e.g. in China) or non-existent (Russia).   The IAEA safeguards system needs to be strong so that it can either discourage a state from breaking the rules or sound the alarm against those that do. Peaceful nuclear cooperation, equal treatment, and above all, global security provide ample reasons to ensure that the IAEA safeguards system gets the support it needs.
