Abe pledges to tackle radioactive water issue
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says his government will do all it can to deal with the massive buildup of radioactive water at the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant.
Abe on Friday met Seiichiro Murakami, a lower house member of the main governing Liberal Democratic Party who heads a LDP panel on the Fukushima nuclear accident.
Murakami said uncovering the cause of the accident and containing the problem of contaminated water are pressing matters, as Japan reconsiders its energy policy.
Abe said the radioactive water issue will be a major topic of debate in the upcoming Diet session. He said the Abe administration will do all it can to tackle the problem.
