Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Saturday signed an agreement into law on cooperation with Japan on peaceful use of atomic energy, the Kremlin said.

The framework accord, signed in Tokyo on May 12, 2009, were ratified by both houses of the Russian parliament in late December.

It outlines basic principles for the two countries' cooperation on civilian nuclear technologies exclusively, allowing Moscow and Tokyo to cooperate in exploring and developing uranium deposits, as well as the designing, constructing and operating of light water reactors.

The agreement also facilitates bilateral cooperation on nuclear safety, including radiation protection and environment monitoring, as well as on nuclear material deliveries.
