Japan Prime Minister Naoto Kan via The Daily Yomiuri:
I will aim to make the country not dependent on nuclear power. I will lower the nation’s dependence on it in stages and try to achieve a society that can function without nuclear power in the future.
There has been much criticism for Kan not laying out specific plans. From what I can see Kan has shared a vision for Japan’s future. Strategy as well as specific plans will be discussed, eventually. I’m in full support of Kan’s vision for a nuclear-free Japan.
