Finland, Russia agree on civilian nuclear program

Finland and Russia agreed to cooperate on a civilian nuclear program, including the research of nuclear energy, reactors and their use in energy production, safety, radiation protection and environmental protection.

A previous agreement between the two countries expired in 2004, according to Finnbay.com. Though there has not been an agreement in place since then, the countries have worked together without a legal treaty framework, the article said.

The latest treaty has a stipulation in place that makes international treaties on nuclear liability reciprocally applicable between Finland and Russia, the article said.
