You're reading: The president’s South Korean visit: no sanctions, no isolation

Just days before the visit, on March 22, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry made an official statement that Ukraine fully complied with its commitment to dispose of its stock of highly enriched uranium, which is suitable for making nuclear weapons.

At the previous summit, in April 2011, Yanukovych offered the United States to swap the nation’s stock of highly enriched uranium for low enriched uranium, used for making fuel for nuclear power plants. Ukraine has 15 nuclear reactors producing about half of the nation’s energy. He also asked for a US assistance package is the construction of a neutron source facility in Ukraine.
