ASTANA Dames Adidas Superstar 2 Print Zwart Goedkoop , Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) opened a Low Enriched Uranium Bank (LEU) in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, and Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said the opening of the bank is a very important event for Kazakhstan.

The LEU bank, aiming at safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, is going to use the facility worth 150-million U.S. dollars to discourage new states from enriching the nuclear fuel.

"As a state possessing large volumes of uranium-containing raw materials Dames Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pack Rood S41833 Goedkoop , we contribute to the peaceful use of atomic energy," President Nazarbayev said at the opening ceremony.

The LEU Bank, based in Ust-Kamenogorsk in the East Kazakhstan region, will store nuclear fuel and sell it to the IAEA members if they have any problems to get it elsewhere.

"The LEU Bank will serve as a last-resort mechanism to provide confidence to countries that they will be able to obtain LEU for the manufacture of fuel for nuclear power plants in the event of an unforeseen, non-commercial disruption to their supplies Dames Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pack Roze S41829 Goedkoop ," IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said on Monday.

Amano highlighted the importance of the LEU bank opening, saying, "I am confident that the IAEA LEU Bank will make a valuable contribution to international efforts to ensure the availability of fuel for nuclear power plants."

The press service of the IAEA has reported that it is going to start buying uranium in the near future, aiming to ship it to the bank in the next year.

The project was funded by donors which include the U.S., the European Union Adidas Superstar Supercolor Pack Oranje S83394 Goedkoop , Kuwait, Norway, the United Arab Emirates and the Nuclear Threat Initiative.

The bank will host up to 90 tons of low-enriched uranium, which is enough to run a 1,000 MW light water reactor or power a large city for three years.

Kazakhstan is a leading producer of uranium Adidas Climachill Boost Goedkoop , boasting more than 15 percent of global uranium reserves.

Russia already established a such bank in 2010, but Kazakhstan LEU Bank is the first one fully owned and managed by the IAEA.

ZAGREB Adidas Boost Schoenen Goedkoop , Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Croatian national football headcoach Ante Cacic said here on Monday ahead of the clashes withKosovo and Turkey that his team is still at the top of the groupand promised to show quality in the four remaining matches.

Croatia saw its comfortable lead cut in the last qualifyingmatch played in June on Iceland, where Cacic's squad suffered itsfirst defeat in the World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign.

After six of 10 scheduled matches, Croatia and Iceland are tiedon top of the group with 13 points each, but the Croatian team hada head-to-head advantage on goal-difference.

On Sept. 2, Croatia will host Kosovo at Maksimir Stadium inZagreb and will be heavily favored to win three points. After thatthe road gets tougher for the team headed by Real Madrid star LukaModric. Croatia will travel to Turkey on Sept. 5 Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Goedkoop , host Finland onOct. 6 and travel to Ukraine in the final round of groupmatches.

Only the best team in each of nine groups will qualify for the2018 World Cup in Russia, and the eight best second-placed teamswill have to battle for the four remaining places in the playoffsthat will take place in November.

"We still have some injured key players but I am confident thatour team have quality and that will show it during the next 45 daysand four remaining matches," Cacic said on Monday when he revealedthat new AC Milan striker Nikola Kalinic is not in his plan for thegame against Kosovo because he hasn't yet reached his optimal shapeafter a two-month long transfer saga from Fiorentina.

However, Cacic believes that he will have a stronger team, bothphysically and mentally Adidas Superstar Slip On Goedkoop , than the one that was beaten in Iceland inJune.

"Players are now fresh and more eager to reach our goal than itwas the case in June when they were tired and at the end of a verylong season. We had players who came directly from the ChampionsLeague final," Cacic pointed out.

When he revealed his list of players for the upcoming matcheswith Luka Modric's name on it, many Croatian fans breathed a bigsigh of relief as speculations about his possible prematureretirement from national duties ended up being false alarms.

"Luka Modric is our captain, the world's best midfielder, and heis a proud Croatian. He was never going to leave his national teamthis way Adidas Superstar Foundation Goedkoop , especially as its captain."

With Modric and his up-and-coming Real Madrid teammate MateoKovacic in great form, alongside midfielder Ivan Rakitic from FCBarcelona, Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic and with Juventusstriker Mario Mandzukic also showing brilliance, it seems thatCroatia has enough firepower to stay at the top of the group andtake its place among the 32 national teams that will compete forthe World Cup trophy next year.
