Le Japon félicite l'Egypte pour les normes de sécurité qu'elle a mises en oeuvre dans la construction de sa première centrale nucléaire

Former senior inspector at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ibrahim Ali el-Asiri has said Japan praised safety specifications set by Egypt in building its first nuclear plant.

Egypt seeks to establish the first nuclear station and said it has become a pressing demand serving the nation and the region at large in the shadow of increasing cost of natural gas and the country’s power needs, he added told MENA on Saturday.

Asiri, who is an expert of nuclear affairs and energy, said Egypt plans to set up pressurized light water reactors of third generation, which, he added, are now the safest worldwide.

Egypt: All Countries Should Join Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Treaty

Egypt: All Countries Should Join Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Treaty | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Deputy Spokesman for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Counselor Nazih El-Nagari, has stressed the necessity of implementing the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, and joining all the rest countries as non-nuclear ones, alongside the five nuclear states' implementation of their commitments in the field of nuclear disarmament.

The official spokesman added that achieving the treaty internationally and disarming the nuclear weapon are constants of Egypt's foreign policy in the field of nuclear disarmament; affirming that this is the only way to achieve the equal security for all world's people.  These statements came to express Egypt's stance of North Korea's last test prompts.

North Korea conducted its third nuclear test on Tuesday, in defiance of U.N. resolutions, pushing it further along the path of developing a workable long-range nuclear missile and drawing condemnation from the United States, Japan, Europe and the North's only major ally, China

Iranian nuclear talks won't be held in Cairo due to instability | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said the 5+1 Group would not hold its upcoming negotiations over the Iranian nuclear program in Cairo, although Egypt had agreed to host the talks.
Egypt-actus's insight:

The 5+1 Group includes five permanent members of the UN Security Council — the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia — plus Germany.

Fathi al-Maraghy, professor of Iranian studies at Ain Shams University, said the group declined to meet in Cairo due to the unstable security situation.

Salehi said that Egyp-Iran relations have been marred by restrictions created over the past three decades, but there are prospects for improvement after the 25 January revolution, reported the Iranian Mehr News Agency.

Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi is proposing Cairo as a venue for the next round of talks with world powers over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.Salehi is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying that Egypt has welcomed the offer and is now consulting with the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.
Egypt-actus's insight:

 

Salehi made the comments Wednesday after a Cabinet meeting in Tehran.

Negotiations between Iran and the six powers fell apart in June 2012 in Moscow. The two sides have been in discussions to get the talks back on track, perhaps as soon as later this month.


The U.S. and its allies fear that Iran may ultimately be able to develop a nuclear weapon, a charge Tehran denies

Egypt-actus's insight:

Le nouveau ministre de l’Electricité et de l’Energie, Dr Ahmed Imam, a affirmé que son ministère poursuivait les procédures de mise en place du programme national de production de l’électricité à partir de l’énergie nucléaire.

Programme considéré, selon le ministre, comme option indispensable pour l’Egypte vu la crise actuelle en énergie électrique. Crise suscitée par une demande grandissante en électricité accompagnée par un déficit dans la production malgré le recours à des ressources traditionnelles comme le charbon.

Egypt's (missed) chance in nuclear diplomacy

Egypt is about to miss a golden opportunity to enhance its stature in global diplomacy, which has presented itself in the form of Iran's suggestion of Cairo as the venue for the next round of multilateral nuclear negotiations. Despite unconfirmed reports that Cairo has turned a cold shoulder to this idea, it is still not too late for the embattled government of Mohammed Morsi to embrace it, thus gaining diplomatic and political capital.

Although the European Union has reacted negatively to Tehran's suggestion, depicting it as a "delay tactic", Cairo can still be the host city for the next round between Iran and the "5+1" nations (the UN Security Council's permanent five members plus Germany) only if Morsi, who is grappling with political tensions at home, nods positively.The prospect of Cairo turning for a few days into a focus of global attention with respect to an important issue involving big powers and regional diplomacy can be a timely diversion for the Egyptian government that is trying to assert its independent role in global affairs.
Egypt-actus's insight:

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Monday said the West was to blame for the hold-up. He had insisted last week that Egyptian officials welcomed the proposal, made despite continuing unrest in Egypt that led Morsi to decree emergency rule in Port Said, Ismailia and Suez on January 27 (...)

 

According to London-based Arabic paper Asharq Al-Awsat, quoting an unnamed Egyptian official, Cairo still hasn't decided about the issue, somewhat contradicting Salehi's statement. Yet, Tehran is still not convinced that the idea is "dead in the water", and government officials are still hopeful that Morsi and his foreign policy team will soon announce their readiness to host the Iran nuclear talk, as a sign of Egypt's maturity and heavyweight role in regional affairs.
