Feb 09, 2018 Understanding the US-Saudi Nuclear Cooperation Controversy
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry seems to be in a rush to strike  formal US 123 nuclear cooperative agreement with Saudi Arabia that would be "flexible" on the question of whether or not Riyadh could enrich uranium or separate plutonium from spent reactor fuel -- the same nuclear activities that the world is rightly worried Iran might use in several years to make bombs under the provisions of the current Iran nuclear deal. None of this will help “fix” the Iran nuclear deal’s allowance for Tehran to enrich and reprocess in several years. Instead, it will only signal to the Gulf States and the world that Washington is not that concerned about preventing the spread of the most dangerous nuclear weapons-related technologies in the most dangerous region of the world. The House and Senate should ask questions and hold hearings to shape these negotiations well before they produce any final text whose terms we might later regret.
