  • Description

    Fears that Canadian nuclear energy technology might be diverted for the manufacture of atomic weapons took External Affairs Minister Allan MaoEachen to Seoul this week (26 June).

    His top priority was to conclude a foolproof agreement preventing the use of a Canadian nuclear reactor, supplied for power generation in South Korea, being used for military purposes.

    There's been alarm following report in the United States that South Korean President Park Chung-Hee had ordered research into nuclear armaments, as a safeguard against a time when the United States might withdraw its protecting nuclear forces.

    After talks with South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Dong-Jo, the two sides issued a statement saying they had formally agreed that the Canadian reactor would be used solely for peaceful purposes. Mr. MacEachen added that he was pleased that South Korea had earlier this year ratified the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.
