The removal will take place after HEU fuel at KUCA is converted to LEU fuel. Unlike HEU, LEU cannot be used to produce a nuclear weapon, according to the statement.
The two countries also said that they have removed all HEU and separated plutonium fuel from the Japan Atomic Energy Agencys Fast Critical Assembly (FCA), which came online in 1967 for the purpose of studying the physics characteristics of fast reactor cores.
The United States will “downblend the HEU to low enriched uranium for use in civilian activities and convert the plutonium into a less sensitive form for final disposition,” the statement said.
Currently, it is estimated that Japan has about 47 tonnes of separated plutonium and 1.2 tonnes of HEU for research reactors.0Related StoriesNew beginning at the final nuclear security summitXi calls for closer global nuclear security co-op in new circumstancesNuclear training center on displayNuclear issues on the tableIs the US serious about a nuclear-free world?PhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsChinese, Russian experts hold talks on G20 summitSouth China SeaEU referendumUS electionG20 summitDPRKIran nuclear talksChina and JapanGreek debt crisisGaza woeReporters JournalEducation should be lifelong, and so should the chance to dreamCleaning up water gets a boost from brand new methodMothers Day a good time to reflect on tradition, futureHighlightsPresident Xi visits Kazakhstan, attends SCO summitPremier Li visits Germany, Belgium, attends the China-EU Leaders MeetingVideo: Bon Voyage, whisky!…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
