Russia's federal nuclear energy Rosatom would train specialists for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) under an agreement signed between the two sides here on Monday.

Rosatom head Sergei Kirienko and IAEA head Yukiya Amano signed the document on training the experts for the UN nuclear watchdog.

Those experts engaged would be under 32 years old and should be in possession of high education.

Upon completion of their training in Rosatom, they will be assigned to the IAEA center in Vienna and other centers, news agencies reported.

Russia would cover all the expenses for the personnel including wages, allowances, insurance and travel expenses, but the number of trainees the agency planned to host was not specified.

The standard period of work in the IAEA will be up to 12 months.

The signing ceremony came at the beginning of the fifth International Energy Week dubbed "Moscow Energy Dialogue," which has kicked off in Moscow on Monday.
