The United States has agreed to buy tons of weapons-grade uranium from Russia's nuclear arsenal to keep the material from falling into the hands of unfriendly countries or terrorists, the White House announced Monday. The agreement, the first of its kind, is also aimed at pumping additional hard currency into Russia's deteriorating economy and helping the Moscow government pay for safety improvements on nuclear reactors in the former Soviet Union, a White House statement said.
