Kuwait will hold nuclear talks with Areva, says French economy minister

Kuwait will hold nuclear power talks with Areva sometime over the next few days, the French economy minister said on Sunday.

Speaking after a meeting with Kuwait's ruler Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, Christine Lagarde said the two sides discussed capital partnerships between French firms and the Kuwaiti government in the field of nuclear energy for civilian use.

"Civil nuclear power ... will be further developed with meetings due to be held in the coming days between Areva and the Kuwaiti authorities," Lagarde told reporters at Kuwait City during a short visit.
