India signs landmark nuclear deal during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “fruitful Japan visit”

Calling it a ‘busy and fruitful Japan visit’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned home on Saturday. During the three-day visit to Japan, the two countries managed to sign a landmark civil nuclear deal and nine other agreements in multiple fields.

Strengthening bilateral ties, India and Japan signed ten pacts covering multiple areas, including more Japanese investments in infrastructure, agriculture and space program cooperation and railways.

Modi traveled in the famous high-speed Shinkansen bullet train, which will be introduced on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad stretch in India, along with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe. Before leaving, he addressed a gathering of business leaders over luncheon in the city of Kobe, on Osaka Bay.

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.
