U.S. energy chief offers Japan aid with nuke cleanup





U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz says he expects deepening cooperation with Japan over cleaning up and decommissioning of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

Moniz says on Oct. 31 the world has a strong interest in seeing the next steps are "taken well and efficiently and safely" in the cleanup from the multiple meltdowns triggered by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami on Japan's northeastern coast.

Moniz was on Oct. 31 with top Japanese officials during his visit, including industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi, who is overseeing the government's role in the plant cleanup.

Japanese regulators on Oct. 30 approved removal of fuel rods from an uncontained cooling pool at a damaged reactor building considered the highest risk at the plant.
