UK-French nuke related deal raises few eyebrows but many questions

Earlier today, Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy made agreements for sanctioning of an investment of £60bn into a nuclear treaty that would tie the two countries in exchange of cooperation for building nuclear plants in Britain. The agreement will be executed with British and French companies signing further sub-agreements towards work on new nuclear facilities in Britain with French expertise helping render British power situation healthier than it currently is. The country premiers also addressed the media through a joint press conference in which many subjects were touched like Iran’s nuclear program, Syrian unrest, Sarkozy’s campaign trails and Cameron’s decision to leave the eurozone talks last December etc.

With the talk underway news about Rolls Royce signing a £400m deal emerged. The company will sign the deal with the French energy giant Avera to supply EPR services to the first of the planned nuclear sites that will be situated near Somerset in UK. News about similar such deals has and will continue to emerge between various important companies of both countries whilst many citizens especially in UK’s Scotland area vehemently oppose nuclear. Both countries ironically also debated the Iranian situation which did not seem to be puzzling in context to either leader despite the fact the Iran’s denial to nuclear was being discussed and debated by them when they themselves were signing nuclear treaties among themselves.
