Japan, India sign agreement on civil nuclear power

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, left, and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shake hands after signing a joint statement at Abe's official residence in Tokyo, Japan, Friday, Nov. 11, 2016. After their bilateral meeting, both countries signed a civilian nuclear cooperation agreement that will allow Japan to export nuclear plant technology to India.
Japan signed a pact Friday in which it agreed to sell India civil nuclear power equipment and technology, as the Japanese nuclear industry seeks markets overseas because of shrinking business at home since the 2011 Fukushima disaster.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, also agreed during talks to advance business and security cooperation.
