Japanese officials faced added pressure today after it emerged that they were warned more than two years ago that the country’s nuclear power plants could not withstand powerful earthquakes.
The international nuclear watchdog raised concerns that safety measures were outdated and a major tremor could cause ‘serious problems’, leaks cables have revealed.
It is not known what changes the Japanese government made after an official from the International Atomic Energy Agency made the comments in December 2008.
The government will face tough questions on whether they acted on a pledge to upgrade all their nuclear facilities to be able to withstand a quake as powerful as the one that struck last Friday.
Details of the warnings came from a US Embassy diplomatic cable that was leaked to the information website Wikileaks.
