German newspaper: Egypt is trying to obtain nuclear weapons
By Ha'aretz Service
Western intelligence agencies have reached the conclusion that Egypt is taking steps to obtain nuclear weapons, the German daily Die Welt reported Saturday. According to the report, Egypt intends to mine natural uranium in the Sinai Peninsula and enrich it to weapons' grade material with the help of Chinese technology. The material would then be used on long-range missiles.
The paper also said that Egypt had in the past few years considered obtaining enriched uranium from several African countries.
Die Welt stressed that Egypt has denied the existence of any military nuclear project, and that the International Atomic Energy Agency, located in Vienna, confirmed that it has no information on nuclear developments in Egypt. The paper claimed that despite the denial, there have been increased hints that Cairo was stepping up its attempts to attain and enrich uranium, so as to be able to produce nuclear weapons in the future.
On January 23, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak set out for an official trip to China. During the visit the two countries signed an agreement on cooperation. Most of the details of the agreement have remained confidential, although security sources believe that the agreement between the two countries regards cooperation on matters of research, development, use of uranium sources, and especially "Chinese aid for mining natural uranium in the Sinai Peninsula."
