China steps in Vietnam nuclear safety

China and Vietnam signed in 2000 cooperation agreement in the nuclear field in 2000.

Recently both nuclear safety regulators signed a memorandum of understanding on nuclear safety cooperation.

Nguyen Tuan Khai, director general of Vietnam’s Agency for Radiation and Nuclear Safety (VARANS), signed the MoU with Hong Xiaoming, Chinese ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary, representing China’s National Nuclear Safety Administration.

The MoU was signed during a meeting of Chinese President Xi Jinping and Vietnam’s General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

The agreement focuses mainly on cooperation in the field of: regulations on nuclear safety and security; training and development of human resources; safety inspection and evaluation; incident response; and environmental radiation observation technology.

 

VARANS noted this is the first document of cooperation between Vietnam and China in the field of nuclear safety since the two countries signed a nuclear energy cooperation agreement in December 2000. It added, the process of negotiating and agreeing on the contents of the cooperation agreement has been carried out by the two sides since October 2004 through bilateral exchanges, meetings and exchanges at international conferences and seminars.
