MOSCOW, July 6 (RIA Novosti)

Stress tests will be conducted on all Japanese nuclear power plants following the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Jiji Press said on Wednesday citing Japanese economics minister Banri Kaieda.

The move is to ease concerns of residents, living in the vicinity of the plants.

A 9.0-magnitude quake struck off Japan's northeast coast on March 11, triggering a tsunami and explosions at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, which caused the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986.
