World Leaders Slow on Helping Japan Nuclear Radiation Crisis

Yeah, the so-called G-8 will have a conference and discuss the nuclear radiation crisis in Japan but my question is “why just now”. Japan should have been helped as soon as the problem occurred. The nuclear radiation tragedy in Japan is not Japan’s problem. It is a human tragedy. It is a problem of the whole world. All countries must be concerned about it or we all die of nuclear radiation. Here’s the latest news.

Leaders of the Group of Eight major countries will discuss the nuclear accident in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture at their meeting in France in May, visiting French President Nicolas Sarkozy told Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan Thursday.

At the Japan-France summit, held at the prime minister’s official resident, Sarkozy offered to provide Japan with a robot that can work in highly radioactive areas at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s <9501> troubled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in the northeastern prefecture.

The president also pledged to help Japan decommission damaged reactors and deal with radioactive materials that have been discharged from the Fukushima plant.

Kan, for his part, sought France’s further support for Japan to contain the nuclear crisis, government officials with access to the meeting said.

At a joint press conference after the meeting, Kan underscored the importance of finding out why the accident has become so extensive in order to map out the nation’s postcrisis energy policy.
