Although its first research reactor is nearing completion, it has neither concluded the IAEA Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement and nor accepted an amendment to the Small Quantity Protocol (SQP). It opposes renouncing a right to conduct enrichment and reprocessing activities in negotiations on a Saudi-U.S. civil nuclear cooperation agreement.
