» Japan and India still need to address issues to reach a bilateral civil nuclear cooperation agreement

India and Japan still need to address “several outstanding issues” before a bilateral civil nuclear cooperation deal can be signed, Japanese Minister of Trade, Economy and Industry Toshimitsu said on Sep 12th.

The Minister, Mr. Mogegi said, “We hope to finalize the civil nuclear cooperation agreement with India as soon as possible,but several outstanding issues” still need to be discussed in working groups “so that we can accelerate the efforts.”

A civil nuclear cooperation agreement must be signed between the two countries prior to any export of nuclear technology from Japan to India, which is a nuclear weapons state that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
