Japan, China, Indonesia closer business ties "Economic Partnership Agreement"
Bill Guerin

Japan, India economic ties -- PM
Manmohan Singh of India
The Indian government formally approved the US$100 billion Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), the country's largest infrastructure project, ahead of the three-day visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this week.
Japan was made the official partner in the DMIC project during a visit by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Tokyo last December. The Japanese government and corporate sector are expected to provide up to $30 billion in loans and investments to support the initiative, in what would be one of Japan's biggest financial contributions to a single foreign project of this nature
Abe, who arrived in the country on Tuesday, is scheduled to address a joint session of the two houses of Parliament, a courtesy not even extended to US President George W Bush when he visited

Business apart, India and Japan are also seeking each other as strategic partners in making a combined pitch for a permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council and military and security cooperation in East Asia to check the influence of China.
Tokyo is also considering the possibility of a nuclear-energy cooperation with India, with the business potential of setting up nuclear plants in India estimated at $100 billion. Accompanying Abe are top executives from Mitsubishi, Hitachi and Toshiba, deeply involved in the global nuclear-power business

Japan and U.S. "changing" -- Todd Crowell

CHINA and JAPAN : a touchy relationship

A SENIOR Japanese politician has said that Japan is capable of producing thousands of nuclear warheads overnight to counter China’s rapid military build-up......
He said: “If Japan wishes, it can produce thousands of nuclear warheads overnight. Japan has enough plutonium at its nuclear power plants for three to four thousand of them. If that happens, we will never be beaten in terms of military strength.”
Mr Ozawa, known for his hawkish views, emphasised that his remarks were aimed at encouraging China to speed up its transition to democracy, and to build a closer relationship with Japan. Some commentators said, however, that his remarks could disturb the recent improvement in relations with Beijing as the two countries mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties.......
Japanese politicians normally prefer to avoid reminding the world of their country’s undoubted ability to build up a nuclear arsenal speedily. The country’s nuclear energy programme has created large amounts of weapons-grade plutonium which is intended for its reactors. Japan has more than 30,000kg of plutonium, which experts estimate is
sufficient to build 6,000 nuclear weapons.,,3-260289,00.html
