MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. Russia plans to build nuclear power plants in Argentina, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday.
"A memorandum of understanding on the project is ready and expected to be signed after negotiations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and [his Argentinian counterpart Cristina Fernandez] de Kirchner in the Kremlin on Thursday," Ushakov said.
He clarified that the Rosatom State Corporation for Atomic Energy wanted to join the construction of the sixth power unit at the Atucha nuclear power plant in Argentina.
According to Ushakov, the energy sector will be a vital topic for discussion at negotiations between the Russian and Argentinian presidents.
"Argentina uses Russian equipment to generate more than 20% of electric energy. Cooperation with Russia ranges from delivery of turbines to complete modernization of Argentinian hydropower plants," Ushakov said.
