Russia and Iran came to an agreement on Tuesday, expanding their nuclear cooperation by allowing Russia to build two new nuclear reactors in Iran. This is all part of Russia’s plan to insure that Iran does not build nuclear weapons. The nuclear power plants will operate under international monitoring. Iran will also have to buy Russian rector fuel, thus depriving Iran of developing the ability to enrich uranium in Iran. This approach has gained the support of many, including the International Atomic Energy Agency.Countries like the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia disapprove of the program because material given by Russia can be used to create nuclear weapons. Though the strong distrust of Russia is what may be causing these nations to disapprove of the program.
Do you think this is a good plan?
Should the US trust Russia and try to build back some good relations?
