Australia Will Begin Talks to Sell Uranium to U.A.E.

Australia will enter talks to sell uranium to the United Arab Emirates as the second-biggest Arab economy aims to start a nuclear power program in 2017, Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd said.

“Australia welcomes the U.A.E.’s efforts to establish a responsible approach to nuclear power generation and hopes that it will serve as a model for other countries in the Middle East,” Rudd said in a statement from Abu Dhabi today.
