Japan will help Kazakhstan build a nuclear power station, KazTAG reports citing Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun. "Japan Atomic Power Co. and a branch company Marubeni Corp. have signed an agreement with Kazakhstan to assist in development of nuclear energy in the country," the newspaper writes. Representatives of the Japanese company and Kazakhstan national nuclear center signed the agreement in Tokyo. In intention to export nuclear energy technologies to Kazakhstan, the Japanese party expressed readiness to help Kazakhstan in training its personnel. According to the Japanese party, Kazakhstan is planning to build several nuclear power stations after 2020. All three Japanese nuclear reactors were suspended after the earthquake in March 2011. As the Japanese company faced difficulties in its own country, it is now looking for opportunities abroad, the article states. "Besides, Japan and Kazakhstan have agreed on investment cooperation, as Tokyo is looking for access to energy resources and minerals," the newspaper writes.
