Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev recently signed an order establishing the creation of the National Nuclear Research Center through the country's Ministry of Communications and High Technologies.
According to the presidential order, the center is being created to ensure the use of nuclear technologies for peaceful purposes, to improve the financial and technical resources of the nuclear technologies sector, to increase highly qualified human resources and to expand nuclear research in the country, AzerTAc reports.
