MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and Saudi Arabia intend to develop cooperation in nuclear technologies that could be used in medicine, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Monday.
"We plan to develop cooperation in the area of nuclear technologies not linked to energy — nuclear medicine, radiological technologies," Novak told the Saudi Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.
In June 2015, the two countries signed an agreement on cooperation in the peaceful use of nuclear technology. The deal creates a legal framework for cooperation in nuclear energy. It envisages cooperation in the construction and operation of reactors, nuclear fuel cycle services and staff education and training.
