Japan Concedes ITER Site to Europe?

November 8, 2004

According to Reuters news service, quoting an unnamed European Union source, Japan has agreed to concede the ITER site to the European Union. The six ITER Parties (European Union, Japan, Russia, China, Korean Republic and United States) have been deadlocked over the site decision for more than a year. The decision is expected to be announced at a meeting of "vice ministers" of the six Parties on November 9 in Vienna.

If the report is accurate, ITER would be constructed in Cadarache, France.

The Reuters and other news articles on ITER are posted on the FIRE website (http://fire.pppl.gov).
