Re-establishing a Safe and Secure Japan

Japan is already on a steady, step-by-step path towards recovering safety in relation to the accident at Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station. Except in areas surrounding the power station, radiation levels are now at normal levels in Tokyo and elsewhere, posing no health hazards. This concurs with the Preliminary Summary of the report issued on June 1 by the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) fact-finding mission that was sent to Japan from May 24 to June 2. The preliminary summary states: "To date, no health effects have been reported in any person as a result of radiation exposure from the nuclear accident." Mobilizing knowledge and technology from around the world, work is underway to bring the situation under control. We are gradually regaining a safe and secure Japan .

At the G8 Summit in  Deauville in May, Prime Minister Naoto Kan stated that it is Japan 's responsibility to share the experiences and lessons learned from the accident in order to realize the highest levels of nuclear safety worldwide. On June 7, Japan issued the Report of the Japanese Government to the IAEA Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety. A thorough investigation of the accident is now underway with the launch of the Investigation Committee on the accidents. Japan will continue to share the lessons learned from the accident with the international community with maximum transparency and make a leading contribution to international discussions on nuclear safety.
