MOSCOW — The United States and Russia will be able to significantly expand cooperation in civilian nuclear energy thanks to a new accord that has sailed through Congress, a senior US official said Friday.

US Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel Poneman told The Associated Press that the framework pact — known as the 123 agreement because its requirements are set in section 123 of the US Atomic Energy Act — would help boost nonproliferation efforts and create new business opportunities.

"It's going to allow the US and Russia to deepen our existing cooperation on nonproliferation and nuclear security... it's going to help to create opportunities to bring nuclear power cooperation to a new level" he said.
