    Russia may boost nuclear cooperation with the United States, the head of the Rosatom state-controlled nuclear corporation, Sergei Kiriyenko, said on Tuesday after talks with U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Rosatom signed an agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy on transferring Russian research reactors to low-enriched uranium fuel.

    "One of the issues on which we can cooperate with the United States is new reactor technology, including fast-neutron reactors, high-temperature reactors as well as low energy reactors, and maybe even mobile ones," Kiriyenko said.

    Kiriyenko said there was great demand on medium-energy reactors in developing countries and the Russian-U.S. nuclear project would be able to meet it.

    Russia and the United States can create joint nuclear products in the future, the Rosatom chief said.
