Promise to Baker: Tadjikistan Will Curb Exports of Uranium

Abstract:

President Rakhmon Nabiyev agreed to adopt an American-designed program to restrict the sale of weapons components, and promised not to sell uranium to countries who could use it for bomb-building purposes. Tadjikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan are rich in uranium ore and have all been visited by high-ranking Iranian and Libyan delegations. A team of American arms control experts will visit Tadjikistan to give advice in setting up a system of controls to prevent the unauthorized export of nuclear-weapons technology.
