Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement with France on the peaceful uses of nuclear power.
The Memorandum of Co-operation aims to help the countries improve policy implementation, standards, regulations and guidelines in the field of radioactive waste management.
Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah City Atomic and Renewable Energy (K A CARE) and France’s Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Institute will work together as part of a Memorandum of Understanding.
The MOU aims to establish a long term technical co-operation between the countries.
They will share practices which will help protect individuals, environment and future generations from onerous and harmful impacts of ionising radiation.
They also hope this will improve environmental monitoring activities and transfer of nuclear fuel and radioactive material.
