TOKYO - Japan's government will announce soon its contingency plans for dealing with nuclear accidents to ease public concerns about restarting reactors closed since the Fukushima radiation crisis last year, Trade Minister Yukio Edano said on Monday.

Contingency plans for Kansai Electric Power Co's two reactors, which are at the most advanced stage in the government's safety checks before restarting, would be announced in a few days, said Edano, who also has the energy portfolio.

The government, which has demanded a series of safety measures on all nuclear generators since the disaster last March, is also keen to see the public accept the idea of restarting the first two reactors.
