Azerbaijan to complete construction of nuclear reactor

aj-lgflag.gifBy 2012, a nuclear reactor will be launched in Azerbaijan between the cities of Baku and Sumgait, President of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan Makhmud Kerimov told reporters today.

According to him, the International Atomic Agency adopted Azerbaijan’s proposals and will render financial assistance to construction of a research reactor.
