Rosatom has interesting proposals on development of cooperation with China - Mishustin

MOSCOW. Nov 30 (Interfax) - The Russian state atomic energy corporation Rosatom intends to develop cooperation with Chinese partners, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.

"The construction of four new power units for nuclear power plants based on Russian designs has started with the involvement of our specialists in China. Rosatom has interesting proposals on the development of cooperation. This is particularly important in the context of the global climate agenda, as green and safe nuclear energy envisions zero greenhouse gas emissions," Mishustin said at the start of the 26th regular meeting between the Russian and Chinese prime ministers on Tuesday.

Speaking of interaction between the two countries, Mishustin mentioned good trends in mutual trade.

"In January-October this year, trade turnover grew by 31% to reach nearly $110 billion," Mishustin said.

"We expect to reach new record levels at the end of twelve months. Most importantly, we should bring our bilateral trade to $200 billion within the next three years, as instructed by our heads of state," he said.
