Oman: doubts that nuclear power is safe for Middle East

‘Nuclear power for peaceful purposes — Is it safe? Oman Daily Observer,  13 November 2012 Mohammed Al Rahbi-  “…… If the talk about the peaceful nuclear energy is progressing on the path of safety, securing this power is also seen with fear. Several disasters in the world are attributed to the use of this power and some European countries are now reconsidering their view on the nuclear plants. The disaster in Japan’s Fukushima was not the first and it won’t be the last……

will the peaceful nuclear energy programme be really safe in these countries of the region? Or will it become a pressure point again in the hands of the West?…
