RIA Novosti reports India’s Atomic Energy Research Commission says it may join Russia’s nuclear center of a low-enriched uranium reserves project in Angarsk.

Russia’s state-run nuclear power corporation Rosatom said on Monday that Russia would provide by the end of 2010 the first batch of low-enriched uranium for an international nuclear fuel reserve bank under the control of the UN nuclear watchdog.
