Cuba, Russia Sign Nuclear Energy Cooperation Deal

VIENNA – Cuba and Russia relaunched their relations on Tuesday with a pacific nuclear energy deal signed in Vienna alongside the International Atomic Energy Agency’s General Conference.

Cuban vice Minister of Science, Environment and Technology Jose Fidel Santana signed the deal with Sergey Kirienjo, director of the Russian state nuclear energy company Rosatom.

Santana said that, after two years of negotiations, the deal would give both countries a framework to immediately begin developing bilateral projects, especially related to the medical and agricultural uses of nuclear energy.

He insisted that the projects were still in their initial phases, so the economic and material volume of the deal could not yet be evaluated.

The deal also includes the creation of Cuban nuclear specialists, applied and fundamental investigations and the management of radioactive waste.

Bilateral relations between Russia and Cuba have intensified in the last few months and they have signed several deals, including one on the sale and repair of train engines for merchandise transport on the island between 2017 and 2021.
