Lead Story
LEU bank in Kazakhstan approved
Russia's initiative on international guarantees of nuclear fuel supplies and services has evolved into a decision to establish a reserve of low enriched uranium in Kazakhstan. In its turn, Russia will ensure low-enriched uranium (LEU) transit through its territory to and from the ‘bank’ if need arises. The transit agreement was signed in Saint Petersburg on 18 June by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano and Rosatom CEO Sergei Kirienko.
