Korea to help Jordan develop nuclear programme
Two countries sign framework deal.
Jordan and South Korea on Saturday signed a framework deal that facilitates the development of regulation and controls over nuclear material as Jordan is striving to develop its nuclear programme, the Gulf News reported.
The accord was sealed by Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission (JNRC) director Jamal Sharaf and Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety (KINS) president Peter Yan.
Sharaf told reporters after the signing ceremony that the agreement involved the training of JNRC staff through specialized programmes to be held in Korean research centres and atomic stations.
In addition, workshops will be organised to determine JNRC needs and to look into ways of meeting them, while there will be cooperation in specialised nuclear safety research, Sharaf said.
"The two sides agreed to delegate specialists from both countries as part of communication and exchange of expertise in a manner that boosts the capacity of Jordanians working in the nuclear control domain," he added.
