[FBIS Translated Excerpt]

  Moscow, 11 January: From the technical point of view, Russia could build a nuclear power plant in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Such a nuclear power plant could help to defuse the situation which has developed around North Korea, Russian Atomic Energy Minister Aleksandr Rumyantsev has said in an exclusive interview for the ITAR-TASS news agency.
  He went on to say that Russian experts were capable of constructing nuclear power plants abroad and were already doing it in Iran, China and India.  [passage omitted on earlier reported statements by Rumyantsev.]

Russian official optimistic about nuclear power cooperation with Japan

CEP20030111000097 Moscow ITAR-TASS in English 1447 GMT 11 Jan 03

[FBIS Transcribed Text]

 By Veronika Voskoboinikova
  MOSCOW, January 11 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia and Japan will be cooperating in the nuclear power industry, including the creation of an experimental thermonuclear reactor ITER. Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's participation in an international conference at the Kurchatov Institute nuclear center in Moscow earlier on Saturday was evidence of Japan's interest in such cooperation, Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Khristenko said.
  The Russian-Japanese Action Plan, adopted by Vladimir Putin and Junichiro Koizumi identified guidelines for fundamentally new high-technologies-related cooperation, Khristenko said and allows for laying a legal basis of cooperation in that sphere.
  Power production featured prominently on the agenda of Russian-Japanese summit talks, Khristenko said. Tangible experience has been accumulated in this sphere. He recalled such projects as oil and gas development off the island of Sakhalin - Sakhalin-1 and Sakhalin-2. Investments in these projects have totaled 26 billion dollars, including 8-8.5 billion dollars of Japanese investments. Private Japanese companies have invested about one billion dollars.
  Khristenko said one of the Sakhalin projects had already entered the oil production phase and gas production options within its framework were being discussed. When they achieve the peak capacity, the two projects will yield an annual 35 million tonnes of crude. Transportation opportunities are practically unlimited. The list of likely consumers, alongside Japan, includes China and the United States.
  In the course of the Russian-Japanese summit talks the transportation was discussed of natural resources from East Siberia and the Far East to the Asia Pacific region. Consultations on this theme will continue.
  Khristenko said this applied not only to oil and gas fields in the Far East, but to natural resources in East Siberia as well. Discussions with likely partners, in the first place, Japan and China have been well underway. Khristenko expects the first supplies to the world market may be made in 2005-2006.
  Russia is finalizing its own program for resources development in East Siberia and the Far East that would make it possible to not just evaluate the available resources, but to distribute them among domestic and foreign markets, including those in the Asia-Pacific region. Khristenko sees Japan as one of the key buyers.
  The Russian Deputy Prime Minister pointed to good opportunities for cooperation in high technologies, including telecommunications. The first steps have been taken along these lines already and contracts 130 million dollars worth signed for cooperation in using Russian satellites and the space industry in general.
  Russia and Japan may expand joint programs aboard the international space station, created and run by a group of countries, including the United States, European countries and Canada.
  The just-adopted Russian-Japanese Action Plan contains a major block of issues concerning trading and economic cooperation in such areas as fishing and biological resources protection. Khristenko recalled that seafood remained one of the leading items of Russian export to Japan.
