Argentina, UAE sign nuclear energy cooperation agreement

Foreign ministers Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates and Hector Timmerman of Argentina have signed an agreement of nuclear cooperation between the two countries, Merco Press reports.

The deal, similar to previous agreements signed with the US, the UK, South Korea, Japan, France, Canada, Russia and Australia, provides a framework for the countries to work together in pursuing peaceful nuclear energy technologies. The deal will assist the UAE in developing its nascent nuclear program.

Argentina has had two operational nuclear reactors since the 1980s - the 335 MW Atucha 1 in Buenos Aires, and the 600 MW Embalse in Córdoba - with four more reactors proposed or under construction.
