of this Agreement
"Co-operative Agreement for Arab States in Asia for Research, Development and
Training Related to Nuclear Science and Technology", which shall be identified by the

a cooperative framework that brings together the Arab States in Asia, which
share the same developmental problems, for the purpose of consolidating and
integrating their efforts in research, development, and training, and
encouraging and strengthening technical co-operation activities among them.
Agreement took the example of other Regional Cooperative Agreements sponsored by
the International Atomic Energy Agency, such as
RCA, but maintained the privacy that
distinguishes the concerned region.

Agreement on 12.06.2002 (GOV/INF/2002/10), and the Agreement entered into
force on 29.07.2002 (INFCIRC/613/Add.1). It is extended for additional
