Nuclear deal struck

Canada and the United States have struck a deal with Mexico that will see the three countries work to eliminate all highly-enriched uranium from Mexico, the Toronto Sun reported. Canada will work with the US and the IAEA to convert Mexico's facilities to one that can run on low enriched uranium. They will be engaged in an effort to transport stockpiles of highly-enriched uranium in Mexico back to the U.S. so it does not fall into the hands of terrorists.
