Japan and Turkey agreed Tuesday to begin talks on an economic partnership agreement, part of a drive to build closer ties as they also step up cooperation on nuclear technology.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed during talks in Tokyo to launch negotiations on the partnership pact.

The two sides also signed an agreement to set up a science and technology university in Istanbul which is expected to facilitate technology transfers and help Turkey build expertise in nuclear energy. Japan pledged support for the project in May.

Abe and Erdogan also agreed to push for faster approvals for construction of a $22 billion nuclear plant involving Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Areva of France.
