Japan will offer information to the Group of 20 financial chiefs on the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda said Tuesday.

Noda is planning to visit Washington later this week to meet with finance ministers and central bank governors from the G-20 advanced and major developing economies.

The minister said at a news conference that he believes the G-20 members “are paying considerable attention” to the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, which is leaking radiation.

“Although not in charge of the matter, I would like to gather all information and explain about the current conditions and restoration work ahead,” he said.
