EXERCISE TALISMAN SABRE 2005

COMBINED JOINT INFORMATION BUREAU

 

DEPLETED URANIUM

 

There has been ongoing media speculation on the use of Depleted Uranium (DU) ordnance during Exercise TALISMAN SABRE 05.

These suggestions are incorrect and misleading.

As we have previously stated on a number of occasions, DU will not be used in TS05 by either Australian or US forces.

This is unequivocal.
