Egypt eyes nukes

The U.S. ambassador in Egypt expects Washington to cooperate eagerly with Egypt if it decides to develop a civilian nuclear power industry.

"If Egypt, after detailed study on this subject, decides that nuclear power is a positive thing and important for Egypt, we can cooperate in this field. Why not?" Ambassador Francis Ricciardone told al-Mehwar television last week.

"We are ready to supply nuclear technology to friendly states which want to benefit from civilian, peaceful nuclear power," he added.

Gamal Mubarak, son of the president, told Egypt's ruling National Democratic Party that the country should consider promoting nuclear power.
