Russian state nuclear firm Rosatom is "still interested" in any deal to expand South Africa's nuclear power-generating capacity and would follow the correct procedures if the South African government invites bids, a senior Rosatom official told Reuters.

"If there is a place for nuclear energy in the energy mix, we are happy to cooperate. We are happy to follow each and every procedure that will be communicated to us by the South African government," said Dmitry Shornikov, Rosatom's chief executive for central and southern Africa.
