Saudi Energy Minister Confirms Plan To Enrich Uranium…! (Photo)

Among the most underreported but explosive stories of the past six months has been growing signs of Saudi Arabia’s nuclear ambitions. But now there are new questions over whether the kingdom’s future planned two nuclear power reactors will be limited to purely energy-related and peaceful purposes.

On Monday the kingdom’s nuclear energy minister said Saudi Arabia wants to enrich uranium for its nuclear power program, Reuters reports — an announcement likely to hinder talks with Washington over American companies’ potential help in establishing its atomic energy program.

“The world’s top oil exporter says it wants to use nuclear power to diversify its energy mix, but enrichment also opens up the possibility of military uses of uranium,” Reuters noted.
