On the sidelines of a videoconference interregional forum, Vladimir Putin and Shavkat Mirziyoyev launched engineering surveying to select a site for the first nuclear power plant in the Republic of Uzbekistan.

An intergovernmental agreement between Russia and Uzbekistan on the construction of a nuclear power plant in Navoi Region of Uzbekistan was signed in September in Moscow. The project involves the construction of two reactor units that meet the latest IAEA safety requirements. The first power unit is to become operational before the end of 2028.

Earlier, the two leaders examined a model of the future nuclear power plant replicating the existing Novovoronezhskaya NPP-2.
