  • Saudi Arabia has approved a national policy for nuclear energy that will be used for “peaceful purposes.”
  • It is the first time the country has spoken about the program since a US-Saudi meeting on the matter earlier this month.
  • The big question at the negotiating table was reportedly whether Saudi Arabia should have to sign an agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.
  • Saudi Arabia’s renewed push towards nuclear power may be linked to the growing threat of Iran in the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia has confirmed its plans for nuclear energy for the first time since a US-Saudi delegation discussed the project earlier this month.

The Ministry of Culture and Information said in a statement to Business Insider that its new policy on nuclear energy would ensure that “all nuclear activities will be restricted to peaceful purposes, within the framework defined by international legislations, treaties and conventions.”
