TOKYO — The Diet of Japan has approved the Viet Nam-Japan agreement for co-operation in the development and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
The approval was also given to three other similar accords that Japan had signed bilaterally with Russia, South Korea and Jordani.
These accords will constitute a legal foundation for Japanese enterprises to export nuclear electricity making equipment and technology to the four countries.
Up to now, Japan has signed civil nuclear cooperation agreements with seven nations, including Australia, the UK, Canada, China, France, Kazakstan, the USA and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC). — VNS
