ST PETERSBURG, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - The status of a great nuclear power makes Russia to develop the atomic industry and ensure control over the nuclear non-proliferation, Vice-Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.
Speaking at the IAEA conference currently underway at the Presidential Library in St Petersburg, Rogozin said, “The Russian Federation is one of the greatest nuclear powers in the military aspect. We renovate the armed forces and the nuclear strategic potential to deter the aggression from any side. We use these technologies in order to safeguard peace for our country and for the planet.”
“Such responsibility binds Russia to comply with the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the nuclear non-proliferation.” “Such combination of civilian and defence technologies is essential and natural. It determines our commitment to the development of safe nuclear technologies,” the vice-prime minister stressed.
Among other reasons for the development of the atomic industry, Rogozin names the weather conditions, which give an opportunity to develop atomic engineering, as well as the country’s drive for maintaining scientific-technological progress and the big achievements in the development of science.
