UAE and Russia sign nuclear development deal

The United Arab Emirates has made a deal with Russia for the development and use of nuclear power generation in the Gulf nation.

The Saudi Gazette reports that the agreement involves sharing technology, equipment and nuclear material with Russia.


  The move comes after the UAE’s Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation gave the  go-ahead earlier this year for construction of two nuclear reactors.

  The UAE, one of the world’s top five power consumers per capita, hopes that nuclear energy will eventually help it meet 25 percent of its consumption even as its economy expands.
