Nuclear Deal With UAE

Rosatom signed an agreement with the United Arab Emirates on Monday, paving the way for deliveries of uranium to the Gulf state.

The agreement, signed by Rosatom CEO Sergei Kiriyenko and UAE Energy Minister Mohammed Al Hamli, sets up a legal basis for an earlier-agreed-upon 15-year contract for the deliveries of uranium to the United Arab Emirates.

The $3 billion deal will see Rosatom supply about half the UAE's fuel needs for four South Korean-designed reactors it is buildingin Abu-Dhabi.

Rosatom's uranium exporting subsidiary, Tekhsnabexport, and its Canadian affiliate, Uranium One, are expected to start deliveries in 2014, Interfax reported.

The reactors are scheduled to come on line between 2017 and 2020.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
