Japan to turn over nuclear material to US

Published: 03.24.14, 11:20 / Israel News

THE HAGUE - American and Japanese officials said Monday Japan plans to turn over more than 700 pounds of weapons-grade plutonium and a supply of highly enriched uranium to the US.

 

The plan is part of US President Barack Obama's years-long effort to secure nuclear material around the world.

 

Japan possesses large amounts of plutonium, despite its pledge to not to hold excess stockpiles. The amount to be returned to the US this time is a fraction of Japan's overall stockpile. (AP)
