The Memorandum was signed in Moscow during the Russian-Mongolian intergovernmental commission. On behalf of the Russian side the document was signed by ROSATOM’s Deputy Director General for International Relations Nikolay Spassky. The government of Mongolia was represented by secretary of National Energy Commission Gun-Aajav Manlaijav.
The main objective of the Memorandum is developing mutually beneficial cooperation in civil nuclear energy use and designing a Centre of Nuclear Science and Technology (CNST) blueprint. According to the document, Russian specialists will provide assistance to the Mongolian side in determining preliminary requirements and the configuration of CNST facilities. The Memorandum framework also involves the two sides designing a preliminary road map for the CNST project.
