Nuclear Regulation Authority Chairman Shunichi Tanaka vowed Thursday to ensure that the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant is made safe as the regulatory body marked the first anniversary of its launch.

“The situation at the Fukushima No. 1 plant remains unstable. Every time a radioactive water leakage, a blackout or other trouble occurs, I think of the people, living inconvenient lives in areas where they have been evacuated, getting worried about their hometowns,” Tanaka, a native of the city of Fukushima, said in a statement.
