Stockholm: Russian Prime Minister Vladimir
Putin today said that he wanted to enhance Sweden`s nuclear
safety with Russian technology, which he described as the
safest in the world.

"At home in Russia, after the Chernobyl tragedy, we
gathered enormous experience. Our technology, Russian
technology, is the best in the world when it comes to the
safety of nuclear plants," he told a news conference in
Stockholm with his Swedish counterpart Fredrik Reinfeldt.

"I am not the only one to think this. The IAEA
(International Atomic Energy Agency) thinks the same. At each
inspection we receive only minor remarks, and almost none in
the field of safety," he said.

During a morning meeting, Putin and Reinfeldt discussed
"the necessity to extend (Russian-Swedish) cooperation in
increasing safety in nuclear plants," Putin explained.

His comments came a day after Russia and Ukraine marked
the 25th anniversary of the world`s largest nuclear disaster,
sparked by an April 26, 1986 accident at the Chernobyl plant,
located in the then-Soviet Ukraine.

The anniversary took place as atomic safety is being
questioned following the earthquake and tsunami-sparked
nuclear disaster in Japan.
