Japan and Russia agreed Tuesday to boost cooperation in nuclear power generation - a deal expected to provide resource-poor Japan access to a stable supply of uranium. "Japan has superb technology in building nuclear power plants, while Russia has rich uranium resources and advanced technology in uranium enrichment," Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso said. The two countries signed several economic accords Tuesday. Visiting Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said his country can offer its expertise in nuclear power engineering and information and telecommunications technologies, according to Russia's Interfax news agency. "Russia has set itself the ambitious task to restructure the economy," Putin said, adding the move "is expected to change Russia's image, not only Russia's economy."
