ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the nuclear deal between West Germany and Brazil. Brazil signed an agreement with West Germany in June 1975 to get nuclear technology and information. The agreement between these two countries included the provision of a base building an ambitious program involving the deployment of at least 60 nuclear reactors in Brazil by the turn of the twentieth century. The Brazilian government was prompted by geopolitics to make arrangements with West Germany for transfer of nuclear technology. The Brazilian government will have considerable bargaining power to enforce further changes in the deal till the German nuclear industry depends on the sale of technology to Brazil.
