外文标题：US, China build largest nuke security centre in Asia-Pacific
BEIJING: China and the United States will open the largest nuclear security centre in the Asia-Pacific region next year.
Funded by China, the centre would be located in Changyang science and technology park in Beijing.
The Centre of Excellence on Nuclear Security will be fitted out with labs, exhibition areas, classrooms, test sites and response force exercise facilities, said Wang Yiren, vice chairman of the China Atomic Energy Authority (CAEA) which will administer the centre.
The news of the centre was highlighted today by official media here as US President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping were set to meet at the Nuclear Security Summit in the Netherlands.
The centre will deal with protection and control of nuclear materials, import and export management, and international exchange, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
It will help China improve nuclear security and management and be a regional hub for training and exchange, Wang said. It will also play a role in promoting the peaceful use of nuclear power.
Upon completion, the Beijing centre will be able to train about 2,000 nuclear-security staff every year, Deng Ge, director of the State Nuclear Security Centre said.
Construction of the centre began in December 2013.

China and India should also work on joint space research, nuclear research and joint scientific studies in many areas of science and technology. Russia is to build a gas and an oil pipeline to India via Kazachstan and China, Indian railways should also be built along the gas and oil pipeline corridor joining India and Russia and also China. China, Russia and Western Europe are all connected by rail and road but India is the only large country not connected to these countries.. Nepal can also be connected to this network via the Lhasa rail line to India. Jai Hind.

India can take a leaf or two from this technological development and set up our own facility for our own use.

Its amazing to see that US is helping China for the same. Don't know how they have explained the situation to Japan and Taiwan.
It is Puzzling.China helped N.Korea,Pakistan&Saudi arabia&Libiya in the nuclear proliferation.And now CHINA wants to project itself to be for Nuclear safety?It is a bigger puzzle than the malasian airline tragedy.Or is it like closing the barn after the horse is gone?China never undertakes any project without some ulterior nefarious motive.
