Section 123: Civilian Nuclear Cooperation Agreements, Hearing Before the Committee on Foreign Relations, United States Senate, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, Second Session, January 30, 2014   [open pdf - 2MB]

This is from the January 30, 2014 hearing on "Section 123: Civilian Nuclear Cooperation Agreements" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Bob Corker, "This year we have several agreements before the committee: an updated agreement with Taiwan, an extension of the agreement with the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency], both of which have been submitted to Congress. The Vietnam agreement has been initialed, as I understand it, and we are looking forward to reviewing it when it is submitted to Congress. Other countries are also seeking to negotiate such agreements with the United States. Over the last several years, the administration has conducted and recently completed a policy review of 123 agreements, and we are looking forward today to hearing the results of this review. One question is how the review dealt with what has become known as the ''gold standard.'' Should the United States require countries with which it enters into 123 agreements to completely forgo enrichment and reprocessing? And in that respect, I will look forward to hearing that response."
