Kishida refers to “maximum use of nuclear energy”

Yomiuri wrote that during a press conference in Germany on Tuesday following the conclusion of the G7 summit, Prime Minister Kishida mentioned the importance of reactivating offline atomic reactors swiftly in order to deal with the looming power shortage. “We will use nuclear energy as much as possible by accelerating safety inspections” by the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA), the prime minister was quoted as saying. He emphasized that the maximum utilization will be premised upon ensuring the safety of nuclear reactors based on NRA rules and regulations, explaining that the regulatory entity is committed to expediting the safety screening process for restarting operations.
