China is ready to approve new nuclear power plants as part of ambitious plans to reduce reliance on oil and coal, ending a moratorium it imposed because of Japan's Fukushima disaster in 2011. The Cabinet on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012, passed plans on nuclear power safety and development that said construction of nuclear power plants would resume "steadily." (AP Photo/Eugene Hoshiko, File)
