The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) functions as the international center for cooperation in the nuclear field within the UN. The IAEA was originally created under the presidency of Eisenhower in July of 1957 in response to growing fear and discovery of diverse use of nuclear weapons at the time. The 171 members of the IAEA meet five times annually to discuss the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear science and technology.
