Adil Tuleushev, director of Kazakhstan's Institute of Nuclear Physics, waves goodbye to an armoured train carrying highly enriched uranium (HEU) in Almaty from where it will travel to Russia for downgrading. The removal of Kazakhstan's HEU is part of the U.S. Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) which tries to secure nuclear material around the world to prevent their misuse.
