GENEVA (Jiji Press)--In its recommendations compiled Friday, a working group of the U.N. Human Rights Council urged Japan to take protective measures against possible negative health effects of radiation from Japan's worst-ever nuclear crisis.
It was the first such call made in the recommendations of member states regarding the nation's human rights policy.
Regarding the March 2011 crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, Austria said Japan should "take all necessary measures to protect the right to health and life of residents living in the area of Fukushima from radioactive hazards."
