Release date- 09082019 - An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team of experts said the operator of a research reactor in Nigeria has demonstrated a high commitment to enhancing safety following the conversion of the reactor core to use low enriched uranium (LEU) as fuel instead of high enriched uranium (HEU).
So too will be the removal of some of the most dangerous material left at the former nuclear plant, including fuel containing HEU and plutonium.
Another big flaw in these estimates is on the potential use of HEU by both countries.
Micallef, cites various intelligence sources to say that Pakistan currently has between 140 and 150 nuclear weapons in its control, but has, it is believed, produced and stockpiled around 3,000 to 4,000 kilograms (6,600 to 8,800 lbs) of weapons grade HEU and about 200 to 300 kilograms (440 to 660 lbs) of plutonium.

While this deadline was unrealistic, there has been progress in reducing the number of countries with access to HEU and plutonium.
The study investigators also tested serum from 221 children whose mothers had HIV, but who did not become infected--the HIV-exposed, uninfected (HEU) group.
The reactor is currently running on highly-enriched uranium (HEU) and Syria wants the help of the International Atomic Energy Agency to use low-enriched uranium (LEU) and to ship the higher-grade material abroad, Yukiya Amano told reporters.
