WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States tentatively has agreed to allow limited imports of uranium from Russia, suspending an antidumping investigation that has been in place for decades, according to a filing by the Commerce Department.

The imports, beginning in 2011, would be limited by yearly quotas.

The department's International Trade Administration filed a notice Tuesday in the Federal Register requesting for comment on the tentative agreement, which is expected to be made final once the 30-day comment period is concluded.
