U.S. to Aid Tajik Efforts to Combat Nuclear Smuggling (update to case 20100730)
On 18 November 2011, United States and Tajikistan signed a joint action plan on combating nuclear and radiological smuggling. The two governments committed to cooperating in enhancing Tajikistan's capabilities to prevent, detect, and respond effectively to attempts to smuggle nuclear and other radioactive materials. Tajikistan is expected to implement independently the steps that it can take on its own, and the United States will help identify sources of funding from within either the U.S. government or the international community to support the steps that require assistance.
