Uganda has signed an Inter-Governmental Agreement with Russia to help the East African country build capacity to exploit nuclear technology for energy, medical and other peaceful purposes. In an emailed statement, Uganda’s energy ministry said the IGA with Russia was signed in Vienna between Energy Minister Irene Muloni and Nikolai Spasskiy, the deputy director general of Russian state corporation ROSATOM. Under the agreement, the statement said, Russia will help Uganda with development of nuclear infrastructure and production and application of radioisotopes for industrial, healthcare and agricultural use.

In May last year Uganda also signed a memorandum of understanding with China National Nuclear Corporation to help Uganda build capacity in the use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes.
