USsenators press energy chief to reveal details of nuclear cooperation withSaudis

美國參議員敦促能源部長透露與沙特核合作的細節



TheUS lawmakers have demanded answers from the Energy Secretary Rick Perry whoallowed a number of US firms to share sensitive nuclear energy information withSaudi Arabia, under the public radar.

美國國會議員要求能源部長里克·佩里(Rick Perry)在公眾面前就允許一些美國公司與沙特阿拉伯分享敏感的核能信息一事給出回答。

SecretaryPerry had issued seven so-called ‘Part 810 authorizations’ to US companies,allowing them to export “unclassified civil nuclear technology” to SaudiArabia. The details of the deals, however, have not been made public out offear that they might reveal “proprietary business information.”

能源部長佩里向美國公司發出了七項所謂的“810號授權”,允許他們向沙特阿拉伯出口“非機密民用核技術”。然而,這些交易的細節并未公開,因為他們擔心這些交易可能會泄露“商業機密”。

Whilethe Department of Energy stressed that “no enrichment or reprocessingtechnology” was shared with the Gulf kingdom, members of the Senate ForeignRelations Committee have written a letter to Perry, giving him until April 10to provide them with details of the authorizations, Reuters and The WashingtonPost have learned.

雖然能源部強調沒有與波斯灣國家共享“濃縮或再加工技術”,但路透社和華盛頓郵報獲悉,參議院外交關系委員會成員已寫信給佩里,讓他在4月10日前向他們提供授權細節。



“Many in Congress, therefore, worry that SaudiArabia's interest in someday producing its own stocks of nuclear fuel – despitethe fact the Kingdom could purchase fuel on the international market morecheaply – could lead to it to divert fuel to a covert nuclear weapons program,” they wrote.

“因此,國會中許多人擔心沙特阿拉伯有朝一日能夠生產自己的核燃料儲備-盡管它可以更便宜地在國際市場上購買燃料–這可能會導致它將燃料轉用于秘密核武器計劃,”他們寫道。

We...believe the United States should not be providing nuclear technology orinformation to them at this time.

我們......認為美國此時不應向他們提供核技術或信息。

Consideringthat the US Congress is in the process of reuating the US-Saudirelationship, following recent “deeply troubling actions andstatements” by the kingdom, the lawmakers advised Perry to stop anyinformation-sharing with the Saudis.

考慮到美國國會正在重新評估美國和沙特的關系,在最近該國“令人深感不安的行動和聲明”之后,國會議員建議佩里停止與沙特分享任何信息。
