A senior U.S. official will come to Ukraine in early April to discuss with the government representatives the removal of highly enriched uranium from the country, a spokesman for Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

"U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Daniel Russell will make a visit to Ukraine on April 5-7 with the aim of bilateral discussion of highly enriched uranium stockpiles removal from Ukrainian research institutes," Alexander Dykusarov told a press briefing in Kiev.

In April 2010 Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych agreed to give up uranium by 2012 during a nuclear summit held in the United States.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Ukraine has removed from its territory a great part of its highly enriched uranium stockpile by the end of last year. Kiev has sent the majority of its weapons grade uranium to Russia.
