Tokyo (CNN) — Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Tuesday that he will give up his salary until the nuclear crisis in the country is over.
He also said he would review the country’s energy policy and consider other energy sources like wind and solar power.
Kan said he would give up his prime minister salary which is 1,636,000 yen a month ($20,200 a month), but he would still receive his lawmaker’s salary.
