Statement by the Minister Hayashi in the Plenary Session of the House of Representatives (March 24th 2016)

Japan firmly maintain its policy of “not possessing plutonium reserves for which the purpose of utilization is unspecified”. … Needless to say, I [Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry] will not approve a plan [made by an authorized organization], if by any chance it is not in line with the policy … and thus this legislation will further enhance the credibility of Japan’s plutonium management.
