Russia and China are discussing further broadening of bilateral cooperation in the sphere of nuclear development, an anonymous source told journalists on Monday.
"The expansion of cooperation between the Russian Federation and China in the nuclear sphere is being actively discussed," the source said, adding that talks on the construction of the seventh and eighth units of the Tianwan Nuclear Power Station in China are in the final stage.
The Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant, located on the Chinese coast and considered to be the safest in the world by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was constructed using Russian nuclear power equipment and service export monopoly Atomstroyexport. It began operation in 2007.
The Tianwan nuclear energy complex will comprise eight generating units when it is fully completed.
Russian and Chinese officials signed a major memorandum of understanding in March 2014 that laid the groundwork for future energy cooperation between the two countries.
The memorandum led to agreements on the joint construction of a series of floating nuclear power plants in China.
According to CEO of the Russian state nuclear energy corporation Rosatom Sergei Kiriyenko, his company views the Asia-Pacific market as a priority for the Russian nuclear industry.
