    MOSCOW, JANUARY 8, RIA NOVOSTI - Russia's President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to amend a list of nuclear materials, equipment, special-purpose non-nuclear materials and related technologies for export control. The Kremlin press service is circulating the document.

    The list, as approved by a federal presidential decree of February 14, 1996, will be amended as follows:

    "Section 2, 'Equipment and Non-Nuclear Materials', Clauses 2.5, 2.5.1 and 2.5.2: the wording 'uranium isotopes' shall be replaced by 'isotopes of natural uranium, depleted uranium or special fission materials';

    "The subsection on, 'General Criteria of Passing Technologies of Uranium Procession and Enrichment, and Heavy Water Production' shall be invalidated." The decree obliges the federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs to "forward to the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency a note in confirmation of Russian agreement to amendments made by the Zanger Committee in the basic list in conformity with the decision made by its session of September 24, 2002, in Vienna".
