MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russia’s state-run nuclear corporation Rosatom head Aleksey Likhachev has praised the company’s operation in 2016, pointing to its positive results both in Russia and abroad.

In addition, Likhachev pointed out that a number of Rosatom agreements with foreign partners came into effect, including agreements on construction of nuclear power plants in Bangladesh, India, Iran, Turkey and Egypt.
