VIENNA - Japan is not planning to expand an evacuation zone around a stricken nuclear reactor right now but this decision is not set in stone, a senior Japanese nuclear official said in Vienna on Monday.




"For the time being we are not going to. But it does not mean in the future we may (not) change that," Koichiro Nakamura, a deputy director general of Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA), told reporters.




Japan's devastating quake and tsunami three weeks ago heavily damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, forcing the government to create a 20-km (12 miles) evacuation zone around the site.
