Why is the United States considering selling Corium to Saudi Arabia?
Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom have signed an agreement to buy a global-class nuclear reactor from a U.S. company.
Corium is a Canadian company that makes fuel-cycle technology that can produce nuclear power.
The deal, the largest ever in the world, has raised questions over the U.K.’s ability to supply the kingdom.
The agreement, if approved, would be the first time that the U tolk have purchased a US. reactor from Corium.
The two countries have been trying to get the two countries to agree on how to move forward on the reactor, a project that has faced delays and disagreements between Saudi Arabia’s leaders and its British counterpart.
The agreement between the U and the U-Kingdom came a day after the Saudis and the British government signed an official agreement to continue discussions over the future of Corium’s reactors.
The kingdom’s Energy Minister, Abdallah al-Mouallimi, said in a statement that the Saudi-U.K. deal was a step in a process that would eventually lead to a “firm commitment to the safe and secure operation of the world’s largest reactor.”
Saudi Arabia’s government announced in May that it was looking to buy up to two reactors from Coradium, but those talks are in the early stages.
The Saudi-led government said in February that it would pursue the sale of two nuclear reactors to Saudi officials and that the deal was in the “preliminary stages” and could be approved before the end of the year.
The Saudis have long wanted to buy nuclear power from the United Sates, but have been hesitant to invest in the technology, and have also struggled to find partners to build their own nuclear plants.
Saudi Arabia has long been concerned that China and Russia are competing with it for the lucrative U.s. market, and has pushed for a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East.
The United States, which has long provided Corium with cheap and reliable fuel, has also struggled with its own nuclear program.
Under President Donald Trump, the U, a major U. S. investor, has stopped buying uranium from Russia.
