Springhill Group Counselling: Japan PM to Attend Nuclear Summit

Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihiko Noda has showed interest in this month’s global summit in order to impart valuable experiences of his country during the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

 

This 2-day summit is set to bring together the leaders of 50 leading nations, including its former host, President Barack Obama of the US. One of the agenda at the Nuclear Security Summit that will be held in Seoul includes a warning to ensure safety of nuclear energy.

 

Noda has announced in a press conference last week that he has lots of things to share in the upcoming summit regarding lessons that Japan has learned through its experience in the nuclear crisis since last year.

 

According to Noda, Japan plans to invest over USD 12.2 billion for the removal of radioactive materials. This is while he insists that most of the affected places have already returned to their usual course of life, except from those restricted areas that are near the nuclear power plant.

 

Noda hopes to cooperate with the leaders of other countries included in the six-nation talks regarding nuclear policies of North Korea and a possible disarmament during the 2-day summit that will start on March 26.

 

Still, there are uncertain factors surrounding Noda’s attendance, primarily the parliament deliberations on their 2012 budget which will reach the crucial stage in March.

 

However, the government said in a warning that even main opposition parties will not stop Noda from going to Seoul, considering the level of importance of the summit.

 

During the summit, Japan is expected to propose enhanced safety measures on nuclear power plants. According to government authorities, the country is set to present a more effective emergency power backup system from what they have learned and experienced in the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

 

The summit came after North Korea’s agreement during its communication with US last week in Beijing about a moratorium on uranium enrichment activities and nuclear tests. Safeguarding nuclear facilities and implementing measures to avoid risks of nuclear terrorism are just several of the global meeting’s agenda, only the second of its kind.

 

The consensus was both announced by North Korea and US this week which has increased promise for the revival of the 6-nation talks including South Korea, Russia, China and Japan.
