India-Japan Boost Maritime-Security ties

(Tokyo) – Japan and India have agreed to strengthen security co-operation and speed up talks on allowing Japan to export nuclear reactors, during a meeting held in Tokyo between Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh.
“In the political and security area, maritime security cooperation will further be strengthened … On civil nuclear cooperation, negotiation will be accelerated toward the early conclusion of the agreement,” Abe said alongside Singh.
India is pushing ahead with building nuclear reactors despite global concerns over safety. The country is unable to rely on the coal sector, which is crippled by supply shortages and mired in scandals. Hundreds of millions of Indians still live without power and factories suffer frequent blackouts. A civil nuclear energy pact with India would also give Japanese nuclear technology firms access to India’s fast-growing market.
