UN Chief Asks Japan to Share Nuke Crisis Lessons

United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon on Monday pledged solidarity with Japan after its quake, tsunami and nuclear disasters and asked Tokyo for input to a UN meeting on atomic safety next month.

The UN secretary-general spent the day touring the rubble-strewn tsunami zone and meeting evacuees from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster, before holding talks with centre-left Prime Minister Naoto Kan in Tokyo.

"I’m here to express the solidarity of myself and the United Nations to all the people of Japan, particularly the affected people," said Ban after also expressing his sympathy in a short message spoken in Japanese.
