Russia and Paraguay signed an intergovernmental cooperation accord on the peaceful uses of nuclear energy at the 61st session of the IAEA General Conference, the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom reported. The document was signed by Rosatom Director General Alexey Likhachev and Paraguay’s Executive Secretary Minister of Radiological and Nuclear Regulatory Agency Cesar Cardozo Roman.
