Japanese leader urges people to unite, rebuild

Posted:

TOKYO (WKOW) -- Japan's prime minister is calling on all of his countrymen to unite in rebuilding the country.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan said in a national address Friday, "We will rebuild Japan from scratch.  We must all share this resolve."

Kan exhorted all Japanese not to be discouraged and to carry on with working hard, just as they have rebuilt Japan in the past. He said the massive earthquake and tsunami disaster and ensuing nuclear crisis were a "great test for the Japanese people."
