    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia's Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corporation is ready to join a project on construction of nuclear power reactors in Saudi Arabia, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said Tuesday.

    "Our company [Rosatom], which has the most advanced technologies, is ready to join the project on construction of 16 nuclear power reactors in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," Ushakov told reporters ahead of a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on the sidelines of G20 summit in China.
