Unfortunately, he is also precisely the sort of guy who has a theoretically infinite number of uses for it, both evil and benign. Probably will do both. The benign one so he can go, "What? Im using it to provide ultra cheap power to this nation! How can you be angry at me for that?" While also secretly using it to rob other planets of their resources for his own evil schemes or something. Hell, he may intend to use it for time travel shenanigans, dude has an absurdly developed ability to know way more than he should. So knowing this device can traverse time AND space would be huge for him. And considering he knew sciona was forging this weapon and had his horror from beyond the planes in place to retrieve it he probably knows what its capable of.
He strikes me as the person who can find multiple uses for an all powerful artifact. Plus if anyone finds it having a legit use is a good thing.

I wonder if he bought the rights to the land Sciona's base was on. Then he could explain were he got it from: "Oh Vale found that! It was on the wilderness preserve I own. One of them. I own a lot of those since I do care so much about the planet." Not that he has to, since it is in his own country now, but still.
