Most papers reported on the effectuation on Thursday of the Japan-India civil nuclear cooperation agreement, noting that as a result, Japanese atomic power generation expertise will be exported to India, a non-NPT signatory that is anxious to address its electricity shortage caused by a population surge. Yomiuri conjectured that Japan agreed to conclude the pact in response to a strong request from New Delhi with the goal of enlisting Indian support for curbing China’s growing political and economic presence in South Asia.
