Myanmar to Build Nuclear Reactors for “Research Purpose”: Minister

Myanmar will build nuclear reactors for research purpose when the required infrastructure is in place, minister for Science and Technology Dr Ko Ko Oo said.

Dr Ko Ko Oo told the Upper House of the parliament, when asked if the use of nuclear energy could be dangerous, correct application of it can be beneficial as the technology can be applied in various fields including health, agriculture and livestock breeding, among others.

He stressed the need to build a nuclear reactor in order to conduct nuclear research more effectively, but said the government is still trying to implement measures for protection against nuclear radiation, drafting laws for non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, building infrastructure for nuclear technology and development of human resources.
