USA and Japan fear Chinese plan to buy Westinghouse business

The US government and Japan are in talks about how to prevent leakage of technological secrets and key infrastructure to the Chinese, as a result of Westinghouse Electric’s bankruptcy, Rambler News reports on Friday.


Westinghouse filed for bankruptcy in March this year under a pressure of multibillion-dollar cost overruns of the estimates during the construction of four nuclear reactors in the United States. As a result of the bankruptcy, the nuclear business is likely to be sold, and Chinese companies are possible contenders.

According to an unnamed U.S. official cited by Reuters, these concerns have grounds, since the Chinese have been striving to appropriate the power grid and nuclear infrastructure.
