The United Arab Emirates is set to become the first Arab state with a nuclear power program and the first to join the civilian nuclear club in more than a quarter of a century, a report published by the Foreign Affairs magazine has claimed.

According to the report, the country’s first reactor is scheduled to be operational by May 2017, after further inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure the fuel is used only for peaceful purposes. So far, the project is on budget and on schedule, the report said.

The report says that the remaining three 1,400 megawatt South Korean¬-designed reactors are under construction and will be gradually connected to the grid by May 2020.
