FAST FIVE: UK Plans To Remove Chinese State-Owned Firm From Nuclear Energy Projects In Latest Sign Of Growing Mistrust
UK Plans To Remove Chinese State-Owned Firm From Nuclear Energy Projects In Latest Sign Of Growing Mistrust When President Trump was in office, the White House and the Pentagon aggressively lobbied No.
After a spree of deals in the mid-2010s, the British government is seeking to remove China General Nuclear from all projects, a decision that would have a dramatic impact on plans to build a plant at Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex using Chinese reactor technology.
Apparently, CGN is so deeply involved in the project, that booting them might lead to a fresh start.
Ultimately, fear that by working with China, the UK might place some of NATO's most precious military secrets at risk is probably why this has suddenly become a priority.
That Cameron oversaw the inking of several shady nuclear power deals with state-controlled Chinese firms is just one of many suspect actions undertaken either during his tenure in office, or after.
