    Egyptian President said that joint Russian-Egyptian project to build the Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant ensures the most up-to-date safety standards and requirements.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) The joint Russian-Egyptian project to build the Dabaa Nuclear Power Plant ensures the most up-to-date safety standards and requirements, making the future plant the safest in the world, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi said Tuesday.

    "Agreements on building the station guarantee the application of the most modern standards and specifications for ensuring its safety, making it the safest in the world," Sisi said at an electric energy forum being held in the city of Asyut.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Trade Representative to Egypt Fedor Lukashin said that Moscow and Cairo are finalizing negotiations on the $26-billion commercial contract to construct the Dabaa plant.

    Russia and Egypt signed an intergovernmental agreement on the construction of the Dabaa NPP on the Mediterranean Sea coast in November 2015. It is set to become the largest construction project completed by Russia and Egypt since the Aswan Dam.
