Toshimitsu Motegi

On Tuesday at a House of Councillors Budget Committee meeting, the minister of international trade and industry who also oversees the power industry, Toshimitsu Motegi, a member of the Liberal Democratic Party, said that it was not appropriate to say that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster has been contained, or that work to bring the accident under control is at an end.

Referring to the previous statement by the Democratic Part of Japan officials in December of 2011, which declared the “end of the work to bring the accident under control”, Motegi said, “The word, ‘end,’ is inappropriate because many tasks remain unresolved.”
