Local communities hosting nuclear power plants in Japan have urged the government to thoroughly investigate the Fukushima accident to determine its cause.

An association of 25-member municipalities held its annual meeting in Tokyo on Thursday.

Many community heads complained that they cannot explain to their constituents the need for nuclear plants while the government’s energy policies remain unsettled. They also urged the government to quickly end the problems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station.

Others called on the government to set up a professional nuclear watchdog, after separating the current Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency from the industry ministry.
Industry minister Banri Kaieda apologized for the enormous trouble that the crisis in Fukushima has caused to other municipalities with nuclear power plants.

He said the government is determined to pour all its efforts into handling the accident.
