Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man launches project to build the first nu­clear re­search re­ac­tor in the king­dom.

Saudi Ara­bia’s crown prince has launched a project to build the first nu­clear re­search re­ac­tor in the king­dom, the Saudi Press Agency re­ported. Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man, also known as MBS, launched seven strate­gic projects in re­new­able en­ergy, atomic en­ergy, wa­ter de­sali­na­tion, ge­netic medicine and the air­craft in­dus­try dur­ing his visit to King Ab­du­laziz City for Science and Tech­nol­ogy on Mon­day. The two most sig­nif­i­cant projects in­clude a nu­clear re­search re­ac­tor and a cen­tre for the de­vel­op­ment of air­craft struc­tures. In March, MBS an­nounced his coun­try’s readi­ness to de­velop nu­clear weapons in the event that Iran heads in that direc- tion. ”Saudi Ara­bia does not want to ac­quire any nu­clear bomb, but with­out a doubt, if Iran de­vel­oped a nu­clear bomb, we will fol­low suit as soon as pos­si­ble,” he told US broad­caster, CBS, in an in­ter­view. www.al­jazeera.com/
