State-owned China National Nuclear Corp. (CNNC) has signed a contract with Nucleoeléctrica Argentina S.A. to build the Atucha III nuclear project using China's Hualong One technology in the South American country.

CNNC said on its WeChat account late on Tuesday that signing the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract marked an important milestone in nuclear ties and would help the two nations tackle the challenges of climate change together.
