Russia, Brazil aim to work together for peaceful uses of nuclear energy

PoliticsRussia, Brazil aim to work together for peaceful uses of nuclear energy

Russia and Brazil have promising prospects for cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy says Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Both Russia and Brazil have outlined a schedule for the restoration of the work of bilateral institutions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday. “Today we talked about the areas that need to be developed in the interests of our countries and our citizens – this, of course, is the energy industry… peaceful uses of atomic energy.

There are very good interactions and prospects here,” Lavrov said at a press conference following talks with his Brazilian counterpart. He said the two countries are also interested in developing the peaceful use of space, agriculture, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industry.

Russia and Brazil have a history of cooperation in the field of nuclear energy. In 2011, they signed an agreement for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Brazil. The deal included the transfer of technology from Russia to Brazil, as well as the supply of enriched uranium for the plant.

Both countries have significant nuclear programs, with Russia being one of the world’s leading nuclear powers and Brazil having one of the largest nuclear programs in Latin America. Cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy could potentially benefit both countries, as well as contribute to global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

However, it’s worth mentioning that nuclear energy is a complex and controversial topic, with safety and proliferation concerns. Any cooperation between Russia and Brazil in this field should be subject to strict safety and security standards and international agreements.
