Japan and India have agreed to soon launch working-level talks to pave the way for exports of the US-2 Japanese amphibious rescue aircraft, according to a government source.

The two countries will have to negotiate details such as training the Indian pilots and allowing licensed production of the aircraft to nurture India’s air industry, the source said. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to push for the deal when he visits India in late January.
