The memorandum is designed for five years. The US Department of Energy expressed hope for continued cooperation with Canadian experts.

The U.S. and Canadian officials have signed a memorandum for more effective cooperation in the field of nuclear safety. This was announced on Friday, October 16 by the National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA) of the U.S. Department of Energy.

The agreement signed between the U.S. Department of Energy and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) provides for the exchange of knowledge and information, including cross-training, seminars, and cooperation in research and development.

It is noted that “the agreement further strengthens strong relations and commitment to advancing mutual goals and priorities in the field of nuclear non-proliferation.”

The U.S. agency stressed that such cooperation is especially important in the period of the pandemic when personal meetings and events can not take place in a full format.

The Canadian AECL is a state-owned nuclear research corporation. The corporation has created the CANDU nuclear reactor, which is used at nuclear power plants built in India, South Korea, Argentina, Romania and China.

Earlier, The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres pointed out that the slow pace of progress in achieving the complete elimination of nuclear weapons is putting the world in danger.
