"We are talking to them (ROSATOM) about the construction of a scientific and research centre that would be for peaceful use exclusively, in particular in medicine, agriculture and all new technologies used as part of the development of digitalisation," Popovic told reporters at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

He said the meeting with Likhachev had resulted in several agreements that would be implemented within the next few months also through an intergovermental agreement, "as well as through the signature of several agreements that will be the basis for constructing the scientific and research centre."
