Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday requested more foreign assistance in cleaning up the Fukushima No. 1 power plant, where work has been plagued by the radioactive water crisis.
“Our country needs your knowledge and expertise” in coping with the aftermath of the triple meltdown triggered by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Abe said in a speech in English at an international science conference hosted by the city and Kyoto Prefecture.
“We are wide open to receive the most advanced knowledge from overseas to contain the problem,” he said.
