UAE Launches a Nuclear Program for Peaceful Purposes
03/24/2008


The United Arab Emirates announced the launching of a nuclear program for peaceful purposes and the establishment of an institution that will assess and develop this program with an initial capital of about $100 million.

The UAE attributed its decision to enter the peaceful nuclear club to official studies that concluded that nuclear-powered electricity represents an option that is commercially competitive and environmentally promising.

The UAE foreign minister said his country will deal with the project in full transparency vis-à-vis the international community.
