On June 6, delegations from Canada, the European Union (EU), Japan and the Russian Federation made significant progress towards the preparation of an agreement for the joint implementation of the ITER project at their Negotiations meeting hosted by the EU in Cadarache (France). Notable events at this fourth Negotiations meeting were the submission of official proposals to host the project by the European Union Рat sites in Cadarache and Vandellós (Spain) Рand by Japan at Rokkasho-mura in the Aomori Prefecture. These new site offers join an existing host proposal by Canada, presented in Moscow on June 7, 2001. At the conclusion of the meeting, the Delegations agreed that the site offers and the negotiating mandates of the EU and Japan represent substantial progress on issues critical to the successful implementation of the ITER project. The next meeting of the Negotiators will be held in Toronto (Canada) on September 17-18, 2002.
