Japan’s newly elected Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said that he is going to build more nuclear reactors after promising its opposite during the election campaigning.
In an interview given to Japan’s national television network, TBS, he said “They will be completely different from those at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant,”
The statement came in at a time when he hasn’t even completed a week in Prime Minister’s office.
In 2011, multiple meltdowns occurred in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant due to an earthquake that prompted more than 100,000 people to leave their homes in wake of the radioactive radiation danger.
