U.S.-Japan nuclear pact automatically extended

Asahi wrote that the U.S.-Japan nuclear pact will be extended automatically beyond the deadline of July 16 because as of Tuesday neither party had notified the other of its intention to terminate the agreement. The paper explained that according to the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, the United States and Japan were required to notify the other party six months ahead of the expiration of the pact if they sought its review, but neither did so. Asahi wrote that the pact will remain in force indefinitely unless one of the parties notifies the other of its intention to terminate it. Yomiuri ran a similar report saying that the extension of the pact will allow Japan to continue its nuclear fuel cycle program.
