TOKYO, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Director General of the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom Sergei Kiriyenko will visit Japan in April, where, in particular, he will hold consultations on cooperation in the liquidation of the aftermath of the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, informed sources in Tokyo told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
This information suggests that Japan would like to use the rich experience accumulated by Russian specialists during the liquidation of the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Tokyo, in particular, is interested in the technology of disposal of radioactive debris, waste and contaminated waste. They are located in great quantities at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant and its vicinity, where a significant amount of radioactive substances fell after the incident.
Rosatom controls the nuclear power holding Atomenergoprom, nuclear weapons companies, research institutes and nuclear and radiation safety agencies. It also represents Russia in the world in the field of peaceful use of nuclear energy and protection of the non-proliferation regime. Rosatom manages the Russian fleet of nuclear icebreakers through Atomflot. OKB Gidropress, which develops the current Russian nuclear power station range VVER, is a subsidiary of Rosatom
According to the Yomiuri newspaper, during Sergei Kiriyenko’s visit the opening of Rosatom’s representative office in Tokyo is possible.
