Malaysia offered Russian nuclear energy expertise

Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said Russia could help Malaysia build a nuclear power plant.

Russia offered to extend its expertise in the peaceful use of nuclear energy, if Malaysia decided to develop its own nuclear program, Bernama reported on Friday.

“We will propose a very sophisticated and complex construction of a local nuclear program,” Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev told the news agency. “We can construct nuclear power generation stations. We can also organise training of local personnel because we believe the project can be managed by Malaysia itself.”

Ulyukayev also told Bernama that Russia could help Malaysia build its own nuclear power plant.

“In Asia, we are constructing infrastructure for these sectors in some countries and also delivering site support for them,” he told the news agency.
