Dhaka: The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will extend all-out support to Bangladesh in setting up a nuclear power plant, visiting director general of the global nuclear watchdog Yukiya Anano said Monday.
"Bangladesh is an excellent partner of the IAEA. We will help the country strengthen the nuclear infrastructure and capacity building to set up the power plant," he said.
After a meeting with Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Dipu Moni, Yukiya told reporters that it will also cooperate with Dhaka in the field of cancer therapy, water resources management and food production, reports Xinhua.
The IAEA head said Bangladesh needs a regulation to meet security concern of nuclear power plants.
"Safety and security are very much important to run a power plant," he added.
Bangladesh is seeking a nuclear power plant to mitigate the country`s power shortage.
