No nuclear plant in Cambodia: PM

nuclear_plantCambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said on January 14 that the country has “no ambition” to develop a nuclear power plant. However, it wants to use nuclear technologies in agriculture, health and animal breeds.

The prime minister made the remarks during a meeting with Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), at the Peace Palace in the capital Phnom Penh.

He asked the IAEA to assist the Ministry of Mines and Energy to develop human resources and to draft laws relevant to nuclear technologies.

Its mandate is to accelerate and enlarge the contribution of atomic energy to peace, health, and prosperity throughout the world.
