Russia and Nigeria signed a cooperation agreement on construction of a center for nuclear science in this African country, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported from the signing ceremony on Monday.

The intergovernmental agreement was signed at the Atomexpo-2016 forum in Moscow by Sergey Kirienko, the general director of Russia's state nuclear energy corporation Rosatom, and Franklin Osaisai, chairman of the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission.
