Kazakhstan and the U.S. are joining efforts in combating nuclear smuggling, Tengrinews.kz reports citing the message of the U.S. embassy in Kazakhstan.

On February 16, 2012 official representatives of both countries discussed prevention of nuclear smuggling, investigation of illegal actions and prosecution of persons engaged in illegal nuclear trade. According to the message, cooperation of both countries in prevention of spread of nuclear weapons is an integral part of the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Kazakhstan.

In these discussions, the United States and Kazakhstan reaffirmed the need to prevent terrorists and other criminals from acquiring nuclear or radioactive material, and shared best practices for a coordinated and effective response to nuclear and radiological smuggling incidents. In addition, both sides shared information on current global smuggling threats and trends in order to improve investigations and prosecutions of smugglers. To further enhance mutual efforts to counter nuclear smuggling, the United States and Kazakhstan discussed best practices in nuclear detection, nuclear forensics, law enforcement, development of new radiation detection technologies, and they identified areas for additional training and cooperation.

Both sides also agreed to develop a regional training Center for countering nuclear threats in Kazakhstan, which would encompass existing cooperation on Material, Protection, Control and Accounting and develop further capacity in countering nuclear smuggling.
