Bolivia, Russia Sign Nuclear Cooperation Agreement

LA PAZ – An agreement signed Thursday with Russian state nuclear energy company Rosatom will advance President Evo Morales’ project for the development of atomic power in Bolivia, the Andean nation’s government said.

Rosatom will assist in the establishment of a nuclear research institute, including training for staff, Energy Minister Luis Sanchez said from Moscow in comments reported by official news agency ABI.

The pact also anticipates that Rosatom will advise the Bolivian government on how to educate the population about the nuclear power initiative, seen as necessary in light of the rejection by residents of La Paz of plans to build a nuclear research center in their neighborhood.

Besides power generation, Bolivia will use peaceful nuclear technology for medical applications and devices employed in geological research and prospecting for oil and gas, the minister said.

Russia-Bolivia cooperation on nuclear matters is the result of a July 2014 meeting in Brazil between Morales and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

La Paz also has nuclear-cooperation agreements with France and Argentina.

Morales has said that Bolivia will invest $2 billion in nuclear power over the next decade.
