Egypt will send atomic experts on a working and training mission to the Soviet Union, to advance Egyptian nuclear potentialities, according to reports received here today.

The Cairo newspaper “Al Ahram” said the Egyptian scientists will be attached to the Soviet Atomic Institute, at Dubna. No further details were given. The arrangements were believed based on negotiations opened last year for Soviet-Egyptian “extension of cooperation” in uses of nuclear energy.
