This involves the signing an intergovernmental agreement under which Russia would supply nuclear fuel to Japan and enrich Japan's uranium, as well as cooperated with Japan in the production of equipment for nuclear power plants.</p><p>Indonesia's <em>Antara</em> news agency reported today, that South Korean firms want to invest $1.5 billion in the first Indonesian nuclear power project, feasibility studies for that are already being carried out by the Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Company. According to Indonesian Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yugiantro, the plant will have a capacity of 1,000 megawatts. Six other, non-nuclear energy projects in Indonesia, totaling another $1.8 billion of investments, are under discussion between both countries, as well.</p><p>Yesterday in Washington, D.C. Lyndon LaRouche noted in his international webcast presentation the significance of such developments: "Nuclear fission power is on the rise. It's unstoppable unless we go to a dark age.... If you look at the pattern of increase of contracts and intentions for nuclear fission power around the world, it's enormous." LaRouche also immediately noted that this is only temporary--the real future lies in thermonuclear fusion as a technology to solve many of the raw materials problems in the world.</p></div></body>
