IAEA Denies Reports That It Will Establish An Office in Fukushima

Press Release 2012/02

Correction of Media Reports on Plans for IAEA “Fukushima Office”

30 January 2012 | A number of media reports have incorrectly quoted Director General Yukiya Amano as saying the IAEA will establish an office in Fukushima at the request of Japan.

These reports are based on a misquotation of remarks by the Director General, who at no point stated that the IAEA would open a new office.

The IAEA is giving careful consideration to a request from Japan to open an office in Fukushima, but nothing has been decided yet. The IAEA will consult as necessary on this matter.
