Fukushima official angrily bolts meeting when restart of nuke plants mentioned


A Fukushima prefectural assembly chairman stormed out of a Liberal Democratic Party meeting on Feb. 15 after the discussion turned toward the possible restart of idle nuclear reactors in Japan.
"I am walking out if the government plans to restart (nuclear power plants) without acting responsibly in dealing with the (Fukushima) accident," said Kenji Saito at an LDP Research Commission on Oil, Resources and Energy meeting in Tokyo to exchange views on energy policy. "I cannot possibly join such a discussion."
The meeting was attended by assembly chairs from 13 prefectures that host nuclear power plants.
