Saudi Arabia enlists lobbyists in quest to build nuclear plants

Saudi Arabia has enlisted a trio of U.S. firms as it tries to persuade the Trump administration to sign off on a sale of nuclear reactors to the country. Three law firms have filed disclosures saying they are advising the kingdom on the issue, as American and Saudi leaders negotiate the contours of a possible nuclear technology-sharing agreement that could allow the enrichment of uranium.

Allies in the same way that mold is our alli. Mold is very dangerous in its natural state, but can be manipulated for specific use.

When it comes to SA, proceed with caution.

I don't see a problem. Sign the non-weapons agreement and have your reactors. Or they want special treatment, again? Since they are making assurances they won't use the tech to make warheads, why not put these assurances in writing?
