Japan rebuilds one year after earthquake and tsunami

IAEA fact-finding team visited Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant

The tragic memories from last year's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan remain, but the rebuilding moves ahead according to the country's Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN.

Ambassador Kazuo Kodama says one of the main priorities for Japan is to get people back into their homes and to make sure their emotional needs are taken care of.

He also says the government is working hard to clean up the nuclear spill that resulted from the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.

Julie Walker spoke with Mr. Kodama ahead of the March 11th anniversary of the disaster.
