Indeed, it is the quality of research and development and technology in the United States that keeps the United States in the international nuclear game, particularly with respect to countries that might otherwise be reluctant to negotiate the terms of nuclear cooperation agreements. Emirati officials, as, as made for the negotiations of the US-UAE 123 agreement that access to top-of-the-line US technology was one of the reason they were prepared to move forward with the gold standard agreement requested by US negotiators. These same officials also found that the potential loss of access to this technology as a result of a decision by the UAE to renounce the 123 agreement and launch their own enrichment or reprocessing activities was sufficiently detrimental to deter its consideration as a strategy.

Meanwhile, U.S. companies such as Westinghouse Electric Corporation, Bechtel Power Corporation and Stone and Webster Engineering have banded into Congress to secure an offer in a market worth up to $50 billion.96 per 1754. Also on October 9, 1985, Senator John Glenn introduced 1754 to ensure an appropriate review of the peaceful use of nuclear exports to the PRC (modelled on IAEA guarantees). The administration also rejected the bill. Senator Dave Durenberger, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, supported the bill.
In a speech on October 21, 1985, Senator Alan Cranston raised questions about China`s assistance to Iran`s nuclear program. Senators Richard Lugar and Jesse Helms would have supported the government.87 As mentioned above, the protocol agreed to the 123 agreement prohibits China or the United States from transferring any technology received from the other country without the agreement of the country that originally supplied the technology to a third country.
