U.S. Allies Spurn America, Turn to Russia for Nuclear Program Help

As the Free Beacon reported [1], American allies are jumping ship now that Obama cut a deal with Iran;

The Russian government has signed major nuclear cooperation agreements with Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan since the start of this year, increasing its influence among traditional U.S. alliesĀ in the region.

In June, Russia closed [2] a major deal on nuclear cooperation between Russia and Saudi Arabia. Since the end of the last decade the Saudis have been implementing plans to construct as many as 16 commercial nuclear power plants. The Saudis have signed agreements with other nuclear nations, including the United States, France, China and Argentina, to help construct the reactors.

Russia is now expected to play a sizable role in operating the nuclear plants, which are still to be built.
