"The full text of the Franco-Iraqi Nuclear Cooperation Treaty [which was signed in Baghdad during November 1975] was not made public until eight months later. One of the conditions set out in the treaty was the stipulation that 'all persons of Jewish race or the Mosaic religion' be excluded from participating in the program, either in Iraq or France. The treaty also committed the French to training six hundred Iraqi nuclear technicians, more than enough for a bomb program." [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
