New South Korean president vows to end use of nuclear power

South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, appears to have learned the lessons of Fukushima in taking a firmly anti-nuclear stance in the early weeks of his office. Following in the footsteps of Japanese premier, Naoto Kan, who was in power at the time of the Fukushima nuclear disaster but is now firmly opposed to nuclear energy, Moon has vowed to scrap plans for new nuclear plants, will not extend the licenses of existing ones and will emphasize a renewable energy economy.

As reported by the Guardian.
