KIEV, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed global nuclear security at their meeting on the Seoul Nuclear Security Summit sidelines, the Ukrainian presidential press office said.
Yanukovich told Obama what Ukraine had done for the removal of highly enriched uranium from its territory. Nuclear security cooperation was also on the agenda.
The presidents discussed the Ukrainian initiative to open a research center at the Chernobyl NPP. “There is no reply to this proposal as yet but consideration is in progress. We would like to create a world-class research center at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. We plan to involve Japan, which has a nuclear accident cleanup experience, in this project. The 25-year experience of Ukraine accumulated since the Chernobyl nuclear disaster may be useful for the entire world,” the press office said.
