L.A.Bolshov’s involvement in the preparation of the document was gratefully noted by the RMWG chairman I.Sofi (Morocco) and the head of the Russian delegation M.I.Kondratenkov.

The Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism was launched in July 2006 in St. Petersburg, where Russian and U.S. presidents issued a joint statement on the promotion of international cooperation in combating nuclear terrorism to prevent the associability of nuclear and radiation hazardous materials to terrorists. Global Initiative founding documents - the Declaration of GICNT Principles and GICNT Regulation on Implementation and Assessment - were adopted at the summit, held in October 2006 in Rabat, Morocco.

To date, the Global Initiative involves 85 states, as well as several international organizations - the IAEA, the EU, Interpol, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The direct activity in promoting the GICNT objectives performs the Implementation and Assessment Group (IAG), co-chaired up to 2015 by the United States and Russia.
