IAEA: ‘No Significant Worsening’ at Fukushima Nuclear Plant

The U.N. atomic agency said on Friday conditions at Fukushima nuclear complex were grave but not deteriorating badly.

“The situation at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants remains very serious but there has been no significant worsening since our last briefing” on Thursday, Graham Andrew, a senior official of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said.

“The situation at the reactors at units 1, 2 and 3 appears to remain fairly stable.”

Earlier Friday, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said in a nationally televised press conference that the Fukushima plant situation would be under control soon, and called on the nation “not be discouraged” and rebuild itself from scratch.
