Nuclear Waste Aid

SEOUL () -- South Korea will provide $1 million worth of nuclear waste disposal equipment to persuade Russia not to dump the toxic material at sea, Foreign Ministry officials said Monday.

South Korea and Japan have protested against the Russian navy dumping low-level nuclear waste in the Sea of Japan. Russia has said it would continue that practice unless foreign countries help build a disposal plant. The officials said Seoul will deliver its aid to Russia in late October, but did not reveal other details.
