reactor at Munich's technical university
even if it has to risk brickbats from the
rest Of the world community. The us is
particularly perturbed about this

which will use highly enriched,
capons-grade uranium, will encourage
The us has extended an offer to the reactor to enable it to use less enriched uranium. If this project "oes into operation, it will seriously discredit us efforts since 1978 - partly inanced by Germany itself - to con expert existing uranium research reactors introducing highly enriched uranium into reactors producing the less enriched variety in an attempt to contain proliferation.
