Prime Minister Fumio Kishida instructed his Cabinet on Jan. 18 to draw up a new clean energy strategy for the country that will lay out the government’s vision to achieve a carbon-neutral society.

"Three of Tonga's smaller islands badly damaged by tsunami.
Three of Tonga's smaller islands suffered serious damage from tsunami waves, officials and the Red Cross said Wednesday, as a wider picture begins to emerge of the destruction caused by the eruption of an undersea volcano near the Pacific archipelago nation.
