The deal in line with UK government’s commitment to nuclear energy as it plans to build a diversified energy mix.

The two governments will work together with the International Atomic Energy Agency to establish a joint framework for cooperation and exchanging good practices on civil nuclear security.

The framework is expected to strengthen international capability to react to nuclear emergencies.

The agreement is expected to create a number of commercial deals in the nuclear energy field, worth more than £500m and 1,500 jobs in the UK, reports The BBC.

Public and private sector bodies in the civil nuclear power industry from both the nations will also work more closely in a number of areas which include education and training, research and development and security.
