Fukushima nuclear disaster still remains unresolved – former Japanese PM

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan reshuffles his cabinet ministers

Over three years after the Great East Japan Earthquake and the ensuing tsunami triggered multiple reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear power facility, former Japanese Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, claims that the Fukushima nuclear disaster still remains unresolved. Moreover, Kan criticizes the current Japanese government for restarting the idea of nuke energy

“It remains a fact that the accident is going on,” said Kan, who was prime minister when disaster struck the Fukushima nuclear power plant three years ago. “Despite that, the Liberal Democratic Party is trying to reboot many nuclear power plants.”

Speaking in front of an audience that included German lawmakers in Berlin, Kan said that currently, the plant is still plagued with contaminated water problems and nearly 140,000 evacuees from Fukushima Prefecture remain unable to go back to their homes.
