UrduPoint News reported that Russia and Ethiopia signed a three year road map on cooperation in constructing a Center for Nuclear Science and Technology and a nuclear power plant in the African state. Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom said that the document was signed within the framework of the 11th Atomexpo international forum, which is currently ongoing in Russia. The Russian side was represented by Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev, while Getahun Mecuria, the Ethiopian minister of innovation and technology, signed the document on behalf of Ethiopia.

Rosatom said in its statement that "The roadmap determines specific steps in strengthening bilateral cooperation in the field of peaceful use of atomic energy. The parties plan have identified joint actions within the framework of NPP construction and CNST construction projects. Thus, a foundation is laid for training personnel and raising public awareness about atomic energy.”
