Tunisia signs up for French nuclear cooperation

29 April 2008

Tunisia has become the latest country to sign a nuclear cooperation deal with France. The 20-year deal, signed by the countries' presidents, Zine al Abidine Ben Ali and Nicolas Sarkozy, covers training of engineers and the exchange of nuclear expertise, and is similar to recent deals between France and Algeria, Libya and Morocco. France has signed nuclear cooperation deals with many countries around the world that as yet do not have nuclear power. Such deals could help to pave the way for future sales of French nuclear power plants in those countries.
