Enformable, November 21
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told Prime Minister Noda that he hoped Japan would soon share its nuclear technology and expertise with India.
“PM Noda replied by saying that Japan wished to advance consultations in a constructive and cooperative manner,” Japan’s foreign ministry spokesman Masaru Sato told TOI. He added though that it wasn’t possible to give any date for resumption of negotiations.
During the wider India-Japan Energy Dialogue on October 9th in Tokyo, officials from India shared their plan for expanding nuclear energy generation in the coming years. In response, Japan assured India that they remain interested in nuclear cooperation, but sought some clarifications bout India’s nuclear liability law that prevents suppliers from making themselves immune to compensation claims in the event of an accident.
