DAEJEON, Nov. 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and Russia have agreed to boost technology cooperation on safety and decommissioning of nuclear reactors, Seoul's nuclear institute said Wednesday.

The consensus was reached in a meeting between the Korea Energy Economics Institute and Russian uranium exporter Tenex, which is controlled by Russia's State Atomic Energy Corp. Rosatom, in Moscow on Tuesday.

"We will make efforts to fuse Russia's expertise and South Korea's technology," Director Ha Jae-joo said.

Currently, South Korea operates 24 nuclear reactors that generate 27 percent of its total power.
