US to Build UAEs 1st N-Power Plant

US-to-Build-UAEs-1st-N-Power-PlantThe United Arab Emirates (UAE) would have its first nuclear power plant ready in 2015 – a target the IAEA describes as optimistic, an official from the International Atomic Energy Agency said recently.

U.S. President Barack Obama agreed to a nuclear energy deal with the UAE potentially worth billions to U.S. energy companies despite protests from some quarters regarding the UAE’s record on human rights.

“They are on a fast track to developing the plant, and we have been giving technical advice and so far they have been responsive,” Ali Boussaha, a director at the IAEA, told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Dubai. “UAE will have a nuclear energy plant in 2015.”
