Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Japan may consider adopting a international convention that defines liability in the event of a nuclear accident, said Goshi Hosono, Japan’s minister in charge of cleaning up the Fukushima Dai-Ichi reactor meltdowns.

“There is a need to look into the possibility of becoming a party or concluding the convention on supplementary compensation,” Hosono said in a press briefing at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. “We should take it up as an important political agenda item.”
