The International Atomic Energy Agency is considering establishing a permanent office in Fukushima in Japan, the site of the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986, an IAEA official told reporters.

The Japanese government asked the IAEA to set up the office and the request will be given “careful consideration,” James Lyons, the agency’s nuclear installation safety director, said at a news conference today in Tokyo.
