Japanese Uranium Proposal

TOKYO — Japan, the third-largest nuclear power producer, plans to ask Russia to allow it to ship uranium from landlocked Kazakhstan through ports along the country’s Pacific coast to cut the cost of importing the atomic fuel, two government sources said.

Under the proposal, the Kazakh uranium would be enriched in Russia, according to the officials, who declined to be named before an official announcement this month.
