India will strengthen its strategic and global partnership with Japan, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on May 27 before his five-day tour of Japan and Thailand. Trying to reach an agreement with Japan with regard to civil nuclear energy cooperation, is also part of the PM's tour agenda. Negotiations for the civil nuclear cooperation agreement have not made much headway since Japan was struck by Fukushima nuclear disaster in March, 2011.
Singh, who flew to Tokyo, his first halt, described Japan as a key regional and global partner for India. In his departure statement, Singh said he proposed to invigorate India's relations with Japan in the political, security and energy spheres. On a three-day visit to Tokyo, Singh will make a strong pitch for elevating strategic ties and push for a bilateral pact on civil nuclear energy cooperation.
Singh will hold exhaustive talks with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe on May 29 on the entire gamut of bilateral ties with special focus on giving boost to cooperation in defence, economic, energy and other areas.
While Japan has backed the Indo-US nuclear deal and the exemptions given to India from international technology sanctions, successive governments in Tokyo have found the going tough in garnering political support for it in the face of stiff opposition from the non-proliferation lobby.
Sale of nuclear equipment and technology by Japan to India have been hit by Tokyo's sensitivity over India's past atomic tests and persistent refusal to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty on the ground that these were discriminatory.
Though India has put a moratorium on further nuclear testing, Japan is insisting on a clearer commitment from it. One of the aspects being debated is the consequences should India decide to carry out another test.
