MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. Moscow is ready to further expand its international atomic energy efforts by creating atomic energy sites abroad, says Igor Vishnevestky, deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Non-proliferation and Arms Control Department.
Speaking at a joint seminar of Russia’s PIR Center and the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) Wednesday, he noted that Russia is the undisputed leader in peaceful atomic energy.
"As we develop our domestic atomic energy and while having very serious plans and groundworks for the future, including in the newest technologies, we also greatly contribute to the creation of nuclear power sites abroad, that is, we specifically carry out what is enshrined in the Non-Proliferation Treaty," Vishnevetsky said.
"We are ready to keep expanding this international cooperation, especially considering that atomic energy is becoming increasingly important in the current geopolitical circumstances," the diplomat said.
