Argentina and United Arab Emirates sign nuclear energy agreement

Ministers from Argentina and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have signed a memorandum of understanding on peaceful uses of nuclear energy during the official visit to Abu Dhabi of Argentine president Cristina Fernandez.

Cristina Fernandez and President Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan

The bilateral agreement was signed by UAE Foreign minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his Argentine counterpart Hector Timmerman, at a ceremony witnessed by President Cristina Fernandez Kirchner and UAE president Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan. The deal makes Argentina the ninth country to have signed nuclear ties with the UAE.

Hamad Al Kaabi, the UAE's permanent representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the deal was similar to those signed with other nations. The UAE has signed nuclear agreements with the US, the UK, South Korea, Japan, France, Canada, Russia and Australia since 2009.

“The agreement constitutes a framework which governs and facilitates cooperation in the area of peaceful nuclear energy and related applications between the two countries,” Mr Al Kaabi said. “It allows the transfer of knowledge, technology and nuclear material to the UAE.

”Argentina has a well-developed nuclear sector with multiple nuclear power plants in operation, as well as a strong industry base for nuclear research, human resources development and training, which the UAE is interested to benefit from.”

The country has had two nuclear reactors running in Buenos Aires and Cordoba since 1974, with a third reactor expected to be operational by June.

Cristina Fernandez expressed interest in developing relations in the economic, investment, tourism and space sectors.

Both leaders also agreed on deals involving air transport, fisheries and livestock. The air-transport agreement was signed by Sultan Al Mansouri, Minister of Economy, and Mr Timerman.

The fisheries and livestock agreement was signed by Norberto Yahuar, Argentina's agriculture minister, and Dr Rashid bin Fahad, Minister of Environment and Water.

The third agreement, for peaceful cooperation on space issues, was signed for the Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology, the UAE's space program, and the Argentine National Space Activities Commission, by the foreign ministers.

We should tell Israel so they can take out Buenos Aires as revenge for their inaction over the nightclub bombings.

It's only a “memorandum of understanding” (ie another meaningless agreement)

They won't actually be able to pay for any of it

@1 Israel would probably just send them some more weapons and specialists to bomb the falklands, and presumably another timmerman clone.

No statement of world-wide support on the Falklands issue then. Wonder why ??
7 Rufus (#) Jan 16th, 2013 - 12:04 pm Report abuse
@6 Possibly because there is no mention of the Falklands in the story (there are three in the comments (mine makes it four)) and they don't have (or for that matter need) any nuclear power stations on the islands?

Argentina has a number of these types of agreements,I'm not sure it is really news, every good scientist came to the USA in 2001 they tried to lure them back but it failed. So they're stuck with all the ones NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD wanted to recruit.

Yeah that's who I would want running my nuke power plants.

She should update our horrible 1950's plumbing system before even being trusted with nuclear energy. Also, I'm tired of Tucuman making our power grids go haywire every time it rains.

I don't think it will be run responsibly, and I'm thinking a nuclear power plant will be a health and environmental catastrophe waiting to happen. There's a lot of neglected infrastructure that needs to be taken care of first. I have a feeling it will be like other businesses where a couple of fat cats take short cuts, cause a disaster and run away with as much money as they can get away with, as long as she gets a slice.

This is good! Now we can ship nuclear devices in, place them where we want, stand back and ask CFK “Would you like to fly?” Arsieland could achieve a whole new level. 20,000 feet in the air!

Ah I wondered when the Canada dwelling rg dickhead would show up and spout about nuclear defence without even reading the article properly Mr Al Kaabi said. “It allows the transfer of knowledge, technology and nuclear material to the UAE. READ THE LAST SENTENCE!!!!! Anyway what's a bunch of freeloading Pikeys from Romania got to do with the article, you've seven million living like that, would rgenweener give them a house just because they ask for one NO, then they insult us, stick them on the first flight back to where they came from. PS Mr AL Kaabi was heard to say “WTF was that?” after CFK left “she looks like she's been standing to close to a nuclear reactor”

The UAE has signed nuclear agreements with the US, the UK, South Korea, Japan, France, Canada, Russia and Australia since 2009. So that puts rgenweener at the bottom of the pile then..................again

#16 I did read and I am sure UAE will love our fresh fish from Islas Malvinas Argentina in exchange for money to build a nuclear defense program 100% made in Argentina. And those Romanians are very much like the british illegal aliens occupying Islas Malvinas Argentina, as a matter of fact they being in UK longer then the brits in Islas Malvinas Argentina and still UK won't give them self determination.
#17 why sell our the fish when it can be traded for favors. And always remember that they are not your fish if they are cut in Argentine territory. We will do our best fishing in Argentina this decade for you brits to have none, enjoy.
#18 pari passu for all or justice for none. Lol

Why don't you go home and help your country NOW.
You are shouting about getting the “illegal aliens out” -how can you do this from Canada. The Canadians have always been close friends of the British so you cannot do anything there. In Argentina you could join CFK's stormtroopers and burn flags, attack the British Embassy, tour operators etc.
So what you are saying is that you are so cowardly that you will let your countrymen lead the charge while you shout from the touchline, out the way of any danger.
Why should anyone, even an Argentinian, give you the time of day ?
29 Conqueror (#) Jan 17th, 2013 - 01:20 pm Report abuse
@19 On a point of information: Assuming that you could get any fresh fish from the (non-existent) Islas Malvinas Argentinas, how are you going to “land” them from a fishing boat at the bottom of the ocean? Try to be sensible. Fish aren't very bright. The only reason arsieland has any “catch” at all is because the fish believe the usual arsie lies and jump into the boat. Death and destruction for arsieland and peace (silence) for the world!
@25 So you're a vagrant. Why would anybody kiss your ass. Too many people and animals been up it. Scared of the “English” bullies, are you? You should be. There are many Brits in Canada. Bet you don't say “Boo” to them, cowardly, lickspittle, yellow-striped and yellow-bellied, arsie vagrant. You should go “home” soon. Or “home” might not be there. Knew you'd think you could sniff out a “homo”. As they say, takes one. Are you on someone's pole right now? Only way you'll ever get a backbone. To help with your English, please note that “Poof” is not the same as pouf, don't get excited, and “Bang” can mean other things besides what you like guys, and girls, to do to your ass!
@28 Did you not get the wrong post number? But don't be nasty to the poor slug, alex vargas. He (it) is doing his immature, ineffectual best. Do you think granddaddy was a storm trooper? Or in the SS? Or Gestapo? Or the einsatzgruppen? He sounds like Goebbels. Same sort of big-mouthed, small-brained, self-important, little twat.

#28 I am home, i was born in America why don't you people go back to europe and murder each other as you always did? Sorry but I support a nuclear defence program 100% made in Argentina and demand the vritish to end the illegal occupation of Islas Malvinas Argentina or else. I am right here in canuda among you and I can spit on your face as often as I wish, deal with it or STFU. I don't burn flags or waste time in a useless demonstration, I pay good money to execute land thieves, child molesters and terrorists, sounds like you don't know me yet.

#29 I would rather poison the fish then have the vritish eat it or better yet have the vritish eat the poisoned Argentine fish. Maybe selling fishing rights in Malvinas Argentina to other nations wasn't a good idea but since they don't exist I guess we will go fishing in a none existent Islas Malvinas Argentina. I am sure the boats will be real as well as the fish, the fishermen, their rights to fish in our waters and legal binding documents that go with it, It all matter of time. You might even pay me to visit before the end of this century.

So PH bank rolls terrorist organisations and pays to murder people - interesting. Do the CIA, FBI and RCMP have you in their sights as Public enemy number 1 OR do they think you are a depraved lunatic....... I wonder.
As you are in Canada, you would have to spit some 4,000 miles to hit me, hardly plausible.

I notice you are great fan of T.J.Coles -axis of logic.
He has produced such profound stories such as the USA caused the Haitian earthquakes using sonic technology and the UK is stealing IRAN'S rainfall using weather weapons.
If we were that bloody good, why would we be flooding our own country ?

As I have said before, how can you be a native American with an European name like Vargas ?
