"We pledge once again our steadfast support for you and for your future recovery. We are very confident that Japan will demonstrate the resilience that we have seen during this crisis in the months ahead as you resume the very strong position that you hold in the world today.

Constant efforts to respond to the situation at Fukushima have required intense analysis by Japanese, American and international experts and we have been very supportive of what Japan is doing to take the appropriate steps."
