YEKATERINBURG, Urals, July 19 /TASS/. Foreign diplomats have praised modern Russian atomic technologies as well as safety approaches during a visit to enterprises affiliated with the Rosatom State Corporation for Atomic Energy, Vladimir Voronkov, Russia’s Permanent Representative at international organizations in Vienna, told journalists on Tuesday.
"The visit certainly achieved its goal. It was interesting and proved the high level of hi-tech in Russia. Russia has what to be proud of and what to show to the world," Voronkov said. He said it was not accidental that Russia ranked first in the world (about 40%) in the world market of uranium enrichment services.
A delegation of permanent representatives of foreign countries at international organizations in Vienna began its fourth annual trip to Russia on Tuesday. More than 20 foreign diplomats from China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Argentina, Belgium, Switzerland, Israel, Singapore, Slovakia, Pakistan and Qatar visited the Urals Electrochemical Integrated Plant (UEIP), the world’s biggest uranium enrichment enterprise, in Novouralsk, the Sverdlovsk region.
According to Voronkov, the visit’s purpose was to acquaint foreign diplomats with contemporary Russian innovative technologies for the peaceful use of atom and approaches to safety provision for the population and environment. The plant’s director-general, Alexander Belousov, said that the foreign guests had had a chance to watch the production process and how production safety regulations were observed.
The foreign diplomats will visit the Beloyarskaya nuclear power plant on Wednesday where they will see a new innovative fourth nuclear power unit with a BN-800 reactor on fast neutrons.
