Kazakhstan plans 'nuclear fuel bank' project

The world's top uranium producer Kazakhstan has said it wants to play a leading role in global nuclear non-proliferation.

It has offered to host a nuclear fuel bank to store low-enriched uranium for civilian purposes under UN control.

The project is aimed at encouraging countries like Iran not to pursue their own uranium enrichment technologies.
