    Moscow, July 12 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and the United States are not planning any measures to step up protection of their nuclear sites in response to the growing terrorist threat, the Russian Atomic Energy Minister told a press conference here Tuesday.

    Alexander Rumyantsev spoke to the media about the U.S-Russian ad hoc nuclear security commission's first report, which it recently submitted to U.S. President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    The report does provide for tighter security around nuclear facilities in Russia and the United States, as well as for improvements to monitoring systems, Rumyantsev said.
