IAEA approves Japanese nuclear stress tests

The United Nations’ nuclear agency has approved the Japanese government’s plan to assess the safety of its nuclear power plants. The International Atomic Energy Agency on Tuesday turned over the results of its week-long fact-finding visit to officials with Japan’s nuclear watchdog, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, Voice of America said. The 10-member IAEA team discussed the government’s plan to conduct stress tests on its nuclear plants, and toured the Ohi plant in Fukui prefecture. The IAEA team recommended that authorities hold meetings with communities located near the power plants to discuss the findings of the stress tests.
