A pact that allows Japan to export its nuclear power technology to India for peaceful purposes has taken effect. It entered into force after Japan’s Ambassador to India, Kenji Hiramatsu, and Indian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar exchanged documents in New Delhi on Thursday.

India possesses nuclear weapons and isn’t a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
