Russia signs N-deal with Libya, keen to help Vietnam

Libya and Russia have signed a civil nuclear cooperation deal November 1, 2008, during Libyan head of state Moamer Kadhafi’s visit to Moscow, the country’s foreign minister said.

The Libyan leader’s first visit to Moscow since 1985, which  included meetings with President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, also  focused  on oil and gas and arms purchases.

“A cooperation agreement was signed in the area of the peaceful use of civilian nuclear, particularly in the design and construction of reactors and the supply of nuclear fuel, extended to nuclear use in medicine and nuclear waste treatment,” said Abdelrahman Chalgham, who accompanied Kadhafi.
According to sources in the Libyan delegation, the deal was signed by the head of Russia’s atomic energy agency, Rosatom, and Libya’s head of nuclear energy management.
