Japan will export N-technology if required: Noda
Tokyo: Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko
Noda said on Friday that Japan will consider exporting its nuclear
technology, in principle, as long as it is still wanted by
Noda said Japan will not provide its nuclear technology
and expertise to any country without restriction, noting that
peaceful use and other requirements must be ensured.
But Noda told a House of Representatives panel he
believes it is "meaningful to provide things with high levels
of safety" to other countries.
Noda`s remarks came as Japan`s bilateral civil nuclear
cooperation accords with Jordan, Russia, South Korea and
Vietnam are due to be approved by parliament this month,
despite public concerns about the safety of atomic power in
the wake of the Fukushima disaster.
The accords, which will lay the legal foundations for
Japanese companies to supply nuclear equipment and technology
to other countries, were approved by the committee on foreign
affairs in the afternoon.
Japan signed the pacts with the four countries before the
world`s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl occurred at the
Fukushima Daiichi power plant, following the March 11
earthquake and tsunami.
Before the crisis, the government led by the Democratic
Party of Japan regarded exporting the country`s nuclear
technology, especially to fast-growing economies, as one of
the most promising ways to generate economic growth.
