» Fukushima governor set 5 conditions for accepting radioactive debris

The Fukushima governor issued five conditions for accepting radioactive debris at a planned interim storage facility, including a law stipulating that the waste will be moved outside the prefecture within 30 years.

The four other conditions for accepting shipments of the waste were: compiling a budget to provide 301 billion yen ($2.89 billion) in grants to the local governments; presenting detailed measures to maintain and manage the transportation routes and secure the safety of local communities along those routes; securing the safety of the interim storage facility and transportation of the waste; and reaching a safety agreement between the central government and the governments of Fukushima Prefecture, Okuma and Futaba over the storage.

Governor Yuhei Sato’s stressed these points at a meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on Sept. 1.
