TOKYO, January 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Iran demonstrates interest in Japan’s civil nuclear technologies and hopes for nuclear cooperation, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said in an interview with Japan’s NHK public broadcaster.
“Japan obtains one of the most advanced technologies in nuclear energy and exports them abroad,” he said. “There are good prospects for Iran and Japan to cooperate in the construction of (Iran’s new) nuclear power plants.”
Araqchi emphasized that nuclear cooperation would become one of the central themes in bilateral contacts between Tokyo and Tehran in the near future.
After the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011 Japan suspended export of its nuclear technologies, but the current Japanese government led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had been making efforts to resume it.
The Iranian authorities consider different variants for the development of their country’s nuclear power, including attraction of the world’s leading producers in this sphere.
