UN expert team concludes review of Japanese nuclear power facilityListen /
Despite a number of accomplishments, Japan continues to face "difficult challenges" as it works to decommission the nuclear power plant damaged in the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
That statement comes from an expert team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which on Monday completed an initial review of efforts to shut down the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
The 13-member team was in Japan from 15 to 22 April and visited the nuclear power plant to gain first-hand information about conditions at the site and progress towards its decommissioning.
The team's draft report was presented to the Japanese authorities on Monday, with the final report due to be delivered within a month.
