MOSCOW, June 09. /ITAR-TASS/. International cooperation on nuclear energy is “resistant to political risks”, Sergei Kiriyenko, the head of Russia’s state nuclear agency Rosatom, told an international forum on Monday.

Kiriyenko said that the nuclear industry was characterized by “agreements and mutual obligations which are 80, 90 or even 100 years old”.

“We believe that this makes the nuclear industry strategically oriented,” he said, adding that international nuclear energy cooperation was dependent on short-term trends and political situations, “but the area of responsibility in the nuclear industry is beyond any political cycles”.

“In the nuclear sphere, we are much more partners and allies than competitors,” Kiriyenko said, referring to his counterparts from foreign countries.
