Implications of Indo-Japanese Civil-Nuclear Deal


Diet endorses pact to export civil nuclear technology to India. This is really a pragmatic and landmark decision by Japanese government and political establishment in Japan. This will not only provide clean energy access to India, but also boost Japanese economy by sale of civil-nuclear equipment.


It has many other direct and indirect implications on issues such as climate-change, regional economic balance in Asia, and help Japan emerging as”Normal” nation. Use of nuclear energy in power generation will reduce the emission of green house gases thereby mitigating the climate change, it will also boost the economic development of India which in turn will strengthen its strategic importance in Asia to balance power. Moreover, it would also help Japan in emerging as "Normal" nation in taking its own strategic decisions.
