WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Japan has asked the United States for additional equipment to help provide water and other resources to keep quake-damaged nuclear reactors cool, the head of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said on Monday.

Greg Jaczko told reporters at the White House that U.S. nuclear plants operated safely and securely.
