MOSCOW, January 16 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hopes to develop military-technological and energy cooperation with Jordan, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in the Kremlin on Thursday as he received credentials from the ambassadors of foreign countries.
“We support intensive contacts with the leadership of this country [Jordan] and personally with King Abdallah II of Jordan,” Putin said.
“We see good prospects for implementing joint projects in the sphere of military-technological cooperation and in the energy sector,” the Russian leader went on to say.
In 2013, Russia won a tender for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Jordan.
On January 15, 2014, Sergei Kiriyenko, the head of the Russian State Corporation for Atomic Energy (Rosatom), arrived in Amman to discuss the fulfillment of that project with Jordanian partners. The NPP construction is estimated at eight billion U.S. dollars. The relevant agreement is expected to be signed in 2016 with due account that the first power unit will be commissioned by the early 2020s.
