House of Councillors Budget Committee Meeting

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, weary and worn out, closes his eyes during a House of Councillors Budget Committee meeting at the Diet in Tokyo on Friday, May 20, 2011. No key cabinet ministers were present at the meeting. Kan said his government will compile, if necessary, a second, third and even a fourth extra budget for the current fiscal year through March 2012 to finance reconstruction project in the quake-tsunami hit northeastern region.
