Russia and Kenya are in talks over what may become Kenya’s first-ever nuclear power plant construction project, as follows from the Atomexpo-2017 memorandum of understanding concluded by Russia’s state nuclear power corporation Rosatom and Kenya’s Nuclear Electricity Board, a TASS correspondent reports from the site of the event.

The memorandum lays the basis for likely cooperation in designing, building and operating commercial and research nuclear power reactors.

Russia and Kenya are to create a working group for identifying joint projects for the creation of Kenya’s own nuclear power industry.

According to the memorandum the consultations over plans for building a nuclear power plant in Kenya and Rosatom’s likely participation in it will be continued. Talks are due soon on the conclusion of an inter-governmental agreement.
