Russia, USA ponder development of nuclear power engineering

A three-day meeting of Russian and American nuclear scientists, which ended behind closed doors on Wednesday, outlines ways of developing nuclear power engineering.

The meeting of directors of Russian state research centres and US national laboratories creating sustainable nuclear power engineering for the 21st century was held in the Vienna headquarters of the IAEA.

According to Academician Yevgeny Velikhov, president of the Kurchatov Institute research centre who attended the meeting, the scientists signed a document that would be forwarded for consideration to the leaders of the two countries. It stipulates the possibility of slashing the risk of proliferation of nuclear weapons and reducing the emission of climate-changing gases, the Academician specified.

The Russian and American scientists presented their vision of the evolution of the next generation of nuclear power engineering, including nuclear power engineering strategies for the 21st century that would strengthen the national security of the two states without affecting the benefits offered by nuclear power engineering to all countries.

According to Velikhov, the meeting greatly promoted mutual understanding of the strategy and tactic of nuclear power engineering development in Russia and the USA.
