MOSCOW. OCTOBER 16, 2023. PIR PRESS. The Security Index Occasional Paper Series came out with the new report “Russia-China Cooperation in Nuclear Energy: Status and Prospects” by Aleksandra Aladko.
Nuclear power stations offer long service life, steady electricity, low fuel costs, energy efficiency, weather independence, and zero carbon emissions. No wonder the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) prioritize the expansion and perfection of their nuclear energy industries. For advanced nuclear energy cooperation, the states have to identify mutual development interests, ensure a fair distribution of rights and obligations, and consider China’s vulnerabilities in the nuclear fuel cycle.
Therefore, this research paper examines promising models of Russia-China cooperation in the nuclear energy field based on a wide range of expert, industry, and technical literature, news releases, intergovernmental agreements, planning documents, and other official records.
This report is published within the framework of the project “Global Security: A View from Russia for the Youth Around the World” (with the support of the Presidential Grants Foundation).
