‘We will address vulnerability of our own energy self-sufficiency’ Japan’s prime minister Fumio Kishida spoke to an audience in the City of London. Courtesy PM’s Office of Japan. Japan’s prime minister Fumio Kishida has backed the restart of reactors that were shut down following the 2011 Fukushima disaster, saying Tokyo will use nuclear power to help reduce its own and other countries’ dependence on Russian energy.

Mr Kishida, facing elections in July and rising energy prices that are squeezing voters’ budgets, said nuclear would be part of the country’s future energy policy.

He told an audience in London’s financial district that Japan would address the “vulnerability of our own energy self-sufficiency” by broadening where it buys energy from, promoting renewables and using nuclear power to diversify its sources of generation.

“We will utilise nuclear reactors with safety assurances to contribute to worldwide reduction of dependence on Russian energy,” he said.
