Saudi Arabia

26 de junio de 2007

In Saudi Arabia, a series of agreements were signed in
February between Russian President Putin and Saudi King
Abdullah, which are reported to include cooperation in civilian
nuclear energy. Apparently Saudi Arabia would like to
have other options beside allegiance to Great Britain and the
United States. For decades, and back to the 1950s U.S. Atoms
for Peace initiative, even oil-rich countries in the Middle East,
had recognized that their wealth in the ground was finite and
had planned to go nuclear.
