Russia’s commitment to collaborate with India in building nuclear power stations in third countries is set to kick-off with Bangladesh’s first nuclear power plant being built with Russian assistance.
The pouring of the first nuclear safety-related concrete for the power plant made Bangladesh the third ‘newcomer’ country to start constructing its first nuclear power reactor in three decades – following the United Arab Emirates in 2012 and Belarus in 2013.
Bangladesh will move a step closer to becoming the 33rd nuclear power-generating country tomorrow when construction starts on the main phase of the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant – seven years after the framework agreement was signed with Russia.
