S.Korean Cabinet approves peaceful nuclear accord with UAE


The agreement allows for the export of related technology and devices to develop peaceful nuclear energy and build power plants, but it bans the use of nuclear technology and materials for military purposes, KBS said. "Without a separate agreement, neither country can enrich or reprocess uranium-235," it said. Uranium-235 is a fissionable material that can be used for an atomic bomb.

Earlier media reports said the two nations agreed last month, when a group of UAE energy officials visited South Korea, to cooperate in the construction of a nuclear power plant.
