Saudi Arabia intends to use its uranium resources to develop its nuclear power programme, according to Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud.

During the International Mining Conference in Riyadh, he emphasised the importance of energy flexibility in navigating the transition to clean energy, according to Al Arabiya News.

According to the Minister, the kingdom wishes to benefit from nuclear technology in order to diversify its energy mix.

“We do have a huge amount of uranium resource, which we would like to exploit and we will be doing it in the most transparent way,” he said.

On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala.
