You're reading: US admiral optimistic on Japan’s nuclear danger

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top officer overseeing U.S. military assistance to Japan says he is cautiously optimistic that Japan will avert a worst-case nuclear disaster by preventing a full meltdown of its crippled reactors.

Navy Adm. Robert Willard told reporters at the Pentagon on March 18 evening that he has provided Japan with a "long list" of areas in which the U.S. military can provide assistance. He described that assistance as growing and evolving. He spoke from U.S. Pacific Command headquarters in Hawaii.

Willard also said that 450 U.S. military radiological and disaster management experts are on standby in the U.S. for possible movement to Japan.

The admiral predicted that, with international help, Japan will achieve a full recovery from the multiple disasters that began with an earthquake, followed by a tsunami.
