‘Saudis looking to get hold of nuclear technology to counter Iran’
The Institute for Science and International Security has said that the Saudi government has accelerated research into nuclear programs to counter Iran.
Labelled a nuclear “newcomer”, the Saudi Kingdom is pushing to arm itself with new technologies, Daily Express reported the institute as saying.
The Washington DC-based group wrote since nuclear action was scaled back in Iran, it has increased in the Saudi kingdom.
To prove that its nuclear program its purely peaceful, Iran signed a deal with the 5+1 group (the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany) in July 2015 according to which Tehran agreed to put some limits on its nuclear activities for a decade.
