The World : Soviet Reactor Pact Told

January 12, 1987

West Germany plans to enter into a $2.5-billion contract to help modernize nuclear power plants in the Soviet Union, a West German newspaper said. In a report in today's editions, Bild said that Bonn has been negotiating an agreement under strict secrecy that would provide modern technological help to the Soviet Union. The newspaper said that West German Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher supports the move despite opposition from the United States, which does not want Moscow to have access to the latest Western technology. However, a spokesman for the West German Ministry for Research said the agency is unaware of any such agreement.
