Islamabad, Mar. 28 (ANI): Russia and China may support Pakistan in setting up new nuclear power plants to meet the country’s growing energy needs.

According to The Nation sources, Moscow and Beijing are expected to bail out Islamabad from the constraints relating to establishing new nuclear power plants.

The Russia-China offer contains the conditions, that the nuclear power plants offered to Pakistan should be set up under the supervision and in collaboration with International Atomic Energy Agency, sources said.

The offer would help Pakistan seek technical cooperation from the world’s nuclear supplier groups on the lines of Indo-US cooperation, which gave New Delhi freedom to seek help from international nuclear suppliers in the recent past. (ANI)
