NEW DELHI, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- India and Japan held a second round of talks in New Delhi Friday on nuclear energy collaboration, Indian government sources told Press Trust of India.

Three months after starting talks, the nations are working toward an agreement allowing the sale of advanced technology to India by Japanese corporations, Press Trust of India reported.

Gautam Bambawala, joint secretary for East Asia, is leading the Indian side and Special Representative Mitsuru Kitano is heading the Japanese delegation.

The timing of the second round indicates significant progress toward a pact, the sources told PTI. But it may not be ready for signing when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visits Tokyo starting Oct. 24.
