Nine Puzzling Cases of Assistance

Atomic Assistance

This chapter examines nine cases of peaceful nuclear cooperation that do not appear to be influenced by the supplier state's political interests: the United States' nuclear cooperation with Indonesia, 1960–1965; Brazil's nuclear cooperation with Iraq, 1980; Britain's nuclear cooperation with South Korea, 1991; Canada's nuclear cooperation with Romania, 1977; France's nuclear cooperation with Iraq, 1975–1981; Germany's nuclear cooperation with Brazil, 1975; India's nuclear cooperation with Vietnam, 1999; Italy's nuclear cooperation with Iraq, 1976–1981; and Soviet nuclear cooperation with Yugoslavia, 1956–1967. The chapter shows that three of the outlying cases are best explained by the need to sustain domestic nuclear industries; in three other cases, suppliers engaged in oil-for-nuclear technology swaps—that is, they provided nuclear technology to influence the recipient country on issues relating to oil supply.
