“A new sphere of cooperation with Japan is emerging for us. We want to help our Japanese colleagues in liquidating the Fukushima meltdown consequences,” said the deputy head of Rosatom Kirill Komarov.
The cooperation could involve Russia shutting down other nuclear power plants Japan won’t use in the future.
“We are glad to offer Rosatom services, including our German subsidiary Nukem Technologies,” Komarov said adding that negotiations are in progress.
Earlier on Thursday Russian media reported that Japan was planning to ask for Russian help in shutting down Fukushima.
The Fukushima disaster is considered the second worst nuclear accident after Chernobyl.
