U.S. and Russia to sign a uranium enrichment deal

Platts Nuclear reports that Russia and the United States will sign an amendment to the 1992 agreement that regulates export of Russian enriched uranium to the United States later this week:

The amendment [...] would, among other things, set new limits on how much low-enriched uranium Russia can export to the US from 2011 to 2020, the year the suspension agreement would end. It also would allow Russia to sell without limits low-enriched uranium for initial cores to US utilities building new reactors.

Update: WNN published a briefing on the issue.
