Removal of Last Remaining HEU from Vietnam - Time Lapse Video

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the Socialist Republic of Vietnam's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Russian Federation successfully removed 11 kilograms of highly enriched uranium (HEU) from the Dalat Nuclear Research Institute. This is the eleventh country from which all HEU has been removed since President Obama called for an international effort to secure all vulnerable nuclear material around the world. The operation was the culmination of a multi-year effort by the U.S., the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, the Russian Federation, and the International Atomic Energy Agency, along with a financial contribution by Canada.
