Japan failed to keep records of key nuke meetings
Tokyo: Japan`s Deputy Prime Minister says the government failed to take minutes of 10 meetings held to formulate its response to the country`s nuclear crisis last year and called for officials to compile reports on the meetings retroactively.
The missing minutes have become a hot political debate, with opposition lawmakers saying they are necessary to provide a transparent record of the government`s decisions after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami touched off the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.
Deputy Prime Minister Katsuya Okada confirmed on Friday at a news conference that the minutes were not recorded at the time and called for them to be written up, retroactively, by the end of next month.
