AP, Oct. 31, 2013: U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said he expects deepening cooperation with Japan over the high-stakes cleaning up and decommissioning of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

So we all have a direct interest in seeing that the next steps are taken well and efficiently and safely,” he said.
