Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has clarified his intention to promote nuclear power despite the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 plant, pledging to make efforts to enhance safety at atomic energy facilities.

“The tragedy that hit Fukushima has yet to end. I can’t stand still when I think of the difficulties the victims have been facing,” Abe said Wednesday during a speech in London. “But we should change the greatest crisis (postwar Japan has faced) into an opportunity to reform the energy market.”
