Tender for the construction of the plant in Jordan was announced in 2011.

Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom was named hte preferred bidder in October 2013.

The draft is ‘in agreement with Russia’s international liabilities and in line with Russia laws’, reported Russian news agency ITAR TASS.

Further talks on the agreement will be held by Rosatom and the Russian Foreign Ministry with Jordan.

The Russian government expects the agreement to boost Russia’s nuclear industry by opening up gateways for long-term orders.
