TOKYO - Tokyo Electric Power Co has met a government-set target of setting up a cooling system for the crippled nuclear reactors at Fukushima within four months of the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl, a senior official was quoted as saying on Saturday.

Goshi Hosono, the government minister appointed to oversee Japan's response to the nuclear crisis, told reporters he believed Tokyo Electric had achieved its target of establishing a stable cooling system for the reactors, the first of a series of steps needed to shut down the plant by January.

The Fukushima nuclear plant lost power after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Three of the reactors had uranium fuel meltdown, and a series of hydrogen explosions scattered radioactive debris across a wide area.
