Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano has apologized to the public over media reports about the long-term inhabitability of areas around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
An adviser to the Cabinet, Kenichi Matsumoto, at first told reporters on Wednesday that the Prime Minister remarked that areas around the nuclear plant will be inhabitable over a long period. He later retracted his comment and the Prime Minister himself also denied making such a statement.
But the reports have angered local leaders, including the Fukushima governor.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Edano reiterated that Kan never made such remarks.
But Edano said it is regrettable that the reports have caused concern to residents who have evacuated from around the plant.
