Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has pledged to help Venezuela draw up plans for a nuclear power plant.

Atomic energy was one of many areas of cooperation discussed during Putin’s first trip to the South American country.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Friday that the power plant would be built to develop nuclear energy for “peaceful purposes” and not to manufacture a bomb.

Putin also offered to help Caracas set up its own space industry — including a satellite launch site.

During Putin’s visit, the two nations reached an agreement on the joint extraction of oil in eastern Venezuela.

The agreement was one of over two dozen deals signed by Moscow and Caracas on Friday.

Putin finished his trip to Venezuela on Friday by meeting with both Bolivian President Evo Morales and President Chavez in Caracas.
