Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) Introduces S. Con. Res. 2

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) introduced legislation to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that expresses that United States – Saudi Arabia cooperation on civilian nuclear projects must be contingent on the “gold-standard” of non-proliferation. Included in this gold-standard are insurances that Saudi Arabia must not enrich Uranium or separate Plutonium within its own territories.

Senator Merkley introduced similar legislation in the 115th Congress when a report was ordered by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The bill is co-sponsored by Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ed Markey (D-MA)
