UST KAMENOGORSK, August 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Kazakhstan are expected to sign an agreement on the construction of a nuclear power plant shortly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.
“The corresponding agencies have coordinated a memorandum. As far as I know the agreement is being prepared for ratification,” he said.
Russian-Kazakhstani cooperation in high-tech industries develops successfully. “We have a great potential for using modern technology. We could see that when we visited the ASIA AUTO facility and the Ulba Metallurgy Plant,” Lavrov said.
“I’m sure that cooperation will continue developing. Trade turnover between Russia and Kazakhstan is quite considerable. Last year it exceeded $2.200 billion. This is only the beginning,” he said.
“Both countries seek to develop cooperation in the field of high technology and innovation. This is why the 2010 Russia-Kazakhstan Interregional Forum, chaired by the presidents of both states, was devoted to high technology,” Lavrov said.
