China, U.S. Ink Deal to Counter Illicit Atomic Trafficking

The U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration on Thursday announced it had inked a deal with China to facilitate the deployment of scanners designed to spot smuggled nuclear contraband.

The pact enables cooperation between China's customs authority and the NNSA Second Line of Defense Program, which installs radiation-detection equipment at foreign border crossings, seaports and airports.

 

The pact "confirms our shared commitment to important global nonproliferation efforts that will help to keep dangerous nuclear materials out of the hands of terrorists, smugglers and proliferators,” stated Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who signed the arrangement with Yu Guangzhou, head of General Administration of China Customs.
