Saudi Government Endorses Nuclear Deal with France

An agreement signed by Saudi Arabia and France two years ago on the peaceful use of nuclear energy in the kingdom has gotten the nod of the Saudi Council of Ministers.

Culture and Information Minister Abdul Aziz Khoja said the endorsement was among the actions taken by the Cabinet during its meeting on Monday in Riyadh.

If it has taken the cabinet two years to endorse an agreement on the use of nuclear energy, how long is it going to take them to actually approve the building of the first plant?
