    A U.S. interagency delegation held consultations in Dar es Salaam with Tanzanian officials in order to discuss a range of nuclear-related topics, the State Department announced on Tuesday.

    The topics discussed included uranium mining and milling infrastructure; nuclear safety, security, and safeguards; strategic trade and border security; and possible areas of increased cooperation.

    The delegation was led by U.S. Department of State Coordinator for Threat Reduction Programs, Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins. He was joined by representatives from the State Department, Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    The meeting marked an important beginning of U.S.-Tanzanian efforts to work more closely together on mutually held international security and nonproliferation objectives.

    During the trip, Ambassador Jenkins also visited the University of Dar es Salaam. There she engaged in a lively discussion about U.S. and international threat reduction programs and President Obama's vision of a world free of nuclear weapon with a group of professors.

    Finally, she met a group of female students with whom she shared her educational and professional experiences. Jenkins encouraged them to act as role models to those who follow in their footsteps.

    Hao jamaa wanataka uranium yetu tu ili waendelee na utengenezaji wa masilaha yao makali. Wanawinda madini hayo tu, wakijua kwamba wakichelewa wakaingia wachina au warusi basi watayakosa madini hayo ambayo ni ya lazima kwa silaha za nyuklia.

    This is the beginning of our resource curse. Uranium is going to be our downfall just as diamonds were to Sierra Leone and other minerals are to Congo DRC. And this probably explains George Bush's record stay of 4 days in Tanzania and the USD 700m donation for malaria prevention bed nets. Keep your eyes opned and ears tuned.
