" The two countries will also sign another agreement at the end of this year, in which they will support commitment to the project."
Amman, Aug 15 - Jordan said Friday that it will sign a deal with Russia next month to start studies on the country 's first nuclear reactor, state media reported.

Khald Toukan, chairman of Jordan's atomic energy commission, said the deal, which will be signed in Moscow, includes starting environmental assessment studies as well as studies on the financing and cost of the reactor, XInhua reported.

The studies will be completed in two years, he added.

The two countries will also sign another agreement at the end of this year, in which they will support commitment to the project.

Last October, the Jordanian government approved Russia' s Atomstroyexport, the country's leading nuclear power service exporter, as technology provider for the country's first nuclear reactor.
