Japan Won't Dump Nuclear Energy
From DNA India
The Japanese ambassador to India Akitaka Saiki said that Japan was not abandoning nuclear power in the wake of the Fukushima disaster following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
Saiki quoted a survey conducted by leading Japanese newspaper which said that 50% of respondents wouldn’t mind relying on nuclear power for energy. “People are not concerned whether nuclear power should be used or not: the question is of safety,” he said.
Saiki said people have the right to demand maximum safety measures at nuclear plants. Saki said the issue of nuclear power could not be an ‘emotional’ one as people wanted sufficient energy supply but did not want the power to be generated in their area.
