Keeping in mind its sensitivities on safety and security features, Japan agreed to exports of its atomic technology and reactors. Shedding their reservations and agreeing on the civil nuclear deal is a landmark pact signed between the two countries.
In all, ten agreements were signed between the two countries, with Modi describing the nuclear pact as historic. Wide range discussions took place between the two nations covering security, terrorism, trade and investments, skill development cooperation, contacts between people-to-people and aerospace.
