News: Did Bush Forget to Tell Sarkozy What the Deal Was?

What would the deal be? Sarkozy:'I am going to sell them technology, Russia is going to sell them nuclear fuel, and how about George.. Why don't you then encourage an embargo on them?'Today, French President Sarkozy starts a three-nation tour of Gulf Arab states eager to share France's expertise in civilian nuclear technology with the Arab world.
On his first trip to the region since taking office in May, he will visit Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), three states interested in developing a civilian nuclear programme despite their oil and gas wealth.
Sarkozy will land in Saudi Arabia as US President George W. Bush tours the region to rally support for his policy of isolating Iran over its "controversial nuclear activities".
Apparently, the UAE has already signed the deal with France, making it the third Arab country to do so, after Algeria and... Libya. (Full Post)

Uranium enrichment is dangerous, but operating a LWR with a French fuel cycle doesn't have much proliferation risk.
