» Japan and India sign statement to promote nuclear power cooperation

On May 29th Indian prime minister, Manmohan Singh, and Japanese prime ministar, Shinzo Abe, signed a joint statement to promote talks to conclude a cooperation pact to this end.It is expected to allow Japanese companies to export nuclear technology and equipment to India.However, because India is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, there is concern that it could use Japanese technology and equipment to further develop its nuclear weapons.

During their talks, Abe and Singh did not touch on the safety issues raised by the Fukushima crisis triggered by Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, according to the Japanese official.
