Japan vows prompt sharing of info on nuke crisis

Japan has offered reassurances to the international community that it will share information about its nuclear plant crisis promptly and accurately.

Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda told a news conference Friday he had made that commitment to counterparts from the Group of 20 rich industrial countries and those with major emerging markets in Washington.

Japan's central bank governor Masaaki Shirakawa said governments had expressed appreciation for Japan's ability to main a functioning financial system and settlement system after the earthquake struck the northern part of the country a month ago.

He said Japan's economy was suffering supply constraints, but that as these problems ease, the country would be back on the path of "modest recovery."
