14th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on Monday a three-month moratorium on plans to extend the operation of nuclear power plants following events in Japan.

"We cannot just go back to business as usual," Merkel told reporters. "Events in Japan ... teach us that risks that were thought to be completely impossible cannot in fact be completely ruled out."
