“The creation of a new industry in the country will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the energy, industry and economy of Myanmar.

We highly appreciate the fact that Myanmar has given preference to Russian nuclear technologies,” said Alexei Likhachev, head of Rosatom.

According to the Prime Minister of Myanmar, Senior General Min Aung Hlain, the agreement is not only the beginning of cooperation on construction, but also in general on the application of nuclear technologies in various fields. 

Earlier it was reported that Myanmar began purchasing Russian oil products.

Also, Myanmar Ambassador Lwin U said that the country intends to buy from Russia 2 million tons of gasoline and about 4 million tons of diesel per year.
