Russia signed a new nuclear cooperation agreement with Argentina, which is already negotiating with China about building nuclear reactors. State-owned Russian reactor builder Rosatom said in a statement that the two countries had signed a “strategic document” confirming their partnership in nuclear energy at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires at the weekend. It was signed by Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev and Argentina Energy Minister Javier Iguacel at a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Argentine President Mauricio Macri. The deal is not a contract to build nuclear reactors, but a framework agreement like ones Russia has signed with many countries.
