ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol says his nation’s efforts to be carbon neutral by 2050 would rely in part on returning to nuclear power, even though his predecessor had tried to move away from atomic power. Yoon’s comments at a summit in the United Arab Emirates, before its leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, served to underline Seoul’s commitment to nuclear power as it works to finish the Arabian Peninsula’s first atomic power plant. That could see South Korea in line for lucrative maintenance contracts and future protects in the UAE, which Seoul has grown closer to over recent years.
