Russia ready to build nuclear plant in Jordan

Russia is interested in helping Jordan build its first nuclear power plant, an aide to President Dmitry Medvedev said, ahead of the Russian leader's visit to the Middle Eastern country.
 
"We are ready to cooperate but it is not an issue to be settled in the next few days," Sergei Prikhodko told reporters on Monday. Russia and Jordan signed a ten-year nuclear cooperation agreement in 2009.
 
"They [the Jordanians] should decide on the location, we should decide on the funding," he said. He added that several other countries have also applied to build the plant, which is expected to go into operation by 2018.
 
Middle East peace efforts, energy and military cooperation will be among the issues for discussion during Medvedev's visit to Jordan on January 18-19.
