China and Taiwan have come to agree terms over nuclear safety, in which both countries will share information on their nuclear power plants, as well as emergency response issues following the disaster in Japan last March.

Officials from both sides will alert each other if a major accident occurs and cooperate in limiting any damage. Nuclear safety teams will now meet each other regularly, as an incident on either side of the Taiwan Straits was likely to affect the other.

The China Daily reported Zheng Lizhong, China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits executive vice-president say at a news conference: “The agreement will give more confidence to the people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits on the safe operation of nuclear power plants.”
