TOKYO (Reuters) – Ridding Japan of nuclear energy entirely is unrealistic, the new marketplace minister claimed on Thursday, toeing the government’s line but contradicting remarks designed a day previously by the new ecosystem minister.

“There are dangers and fears about nuclear power,” sector and trade minister Isshu Sugawara told reporters a working day right after his appointment by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a cupboard reshuffle.

“But ‘zero-nukes’ is, at the minute and in the upcoming, not realistic,” he additional.

The feedback by Sugawara, himself formerly an anti-nuclear advocate, were at odds with people designed by new ecosystem minister Shinjiro Koizumi, who said on Wednesday he needed Japan to shut down nuclear reactors to steer clear of a repeat of the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
