VIENNA, September 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian state nuclear company Rosatom may cooperate with Germany's Siemens in nuclear medicine, and working groups continue talks on this issue, even though Siemens has decided to drop its nuclear energy projects, Rosatom spokesman Sergei Novikov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Siemens is quitting the nuclear energy business following the position of the German government, which made the decision to gradually abandon nuclear energy.
"Rosatom is one of the leading producers of isotopes used in nuclear medicine, for diagnosis and treatment of oncological and cardio-vascular diseases. Cooperation with Siemens as a producer of equipment for nuclear medicine could be fruitful," Novikov said.
Rosatom spokesman noted that the decision of Siemens to heed the opinion of Germany’s public and political circles to refuse from the use of nuclear energy does not apply to nuclear medicine. “There are neither political nor juridical restrictions on the development of this branch,” he stressed.
