The governor of Fukushima Prefecture says Japan's nuclear energy policy should be based on lessons learned from the 2011 nuclear accident.
Masao Uchibori made the remarks on Monday 3 days after leaders from Japan and India signed an agreement that will allow the export of nuclear power technology to India.
The pact limits the use of nuclear-related technology to peaceful purposes and both countries will exchange information on materials and equipment.
Uchibori told reporters that the prefecture is still enduring hardship more than 5 years after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.
The governor said it is important for the prefecture to tell the country and the world about the massive problems and challenges it is experiencing.
He also stressed the importance of pressing the government and Tokyo Electric Power Company, the Daiichi plant's operator, to scrap all nuclear reactors in Fukushima.
