U.s. Says 'not At All Concerned' About Japan's Plutonium

says 'not at all concerned' about Japan's plutonium VIENNA Wed Mar 5, 2014 10:46am EST Japan VIENNA url (Reuters) - The United States is not worried about Japan's plutonium stocks, a senior U.S. diplomat said on Wednesday, following criticism raised by China in a new dispute between the east Asian neighbors. "We are not at all concerned that the plutonium is either being handled improperly or that there isn't a plan for disposition," Joseph Macmanus, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. nuclear agency, browse told reporters in response to a question. Last month, Beijing said it was "extremely concerned" by a report that Japan has resisted returning to the United States more than 300 kg (660 lb) of mostly weapons-grade plutonium. Japan's Kyodo news agency said the United States had pressed Japan to give back the nuclear material, which could be used to make up to 50 nuclear bombs. Japan had balked, but finally given in to U.S. demands, Kyodo said.
