Japan's new prime minister Shinzo Abe has voiced his willingness to build new nuclear reactors, reports said today, despite widespread public opposition to atomic energy since the Fukushima crisis.



During an interview yesterday with television network TBS, Abe said new reactors would be different from those at Fukushima that were crippled by the earthquake and tsunami of 2011, according to major news outlets including the Nikkei business daily and Kyodo News.
