New Japenese industry minister Yoshio Hachiro vows efforts to resume halted nuclear reactors

Author: No Comments Share:

Newly appointed industry minister Yoshio Hachiro on Friday vowed to back Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda‘s policy of resuming halted nuclear power reactors once their safety is thoroughly checked.

Hachiro’s comment at a news conference is in line with Noda’s view that restarting nuclear reactors suspended for regular checkups is necessary to ensure a stable power supply for now.

The new industry minister also shared Noda’s stance on nuclear energy policy in the medium to long term, saying it would be ”very difficult” to build new nuclear power plants in Japan after the Fukushima nuclear crisis.
