TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's public should realize that phasing out nuclear power would not be risk-free, the vice chairman of the Japan Atomic Energy Commission warned on Wednesday, as the government seeks to craft a new energy policy and the Fukushima crisis drags on.

The radiation crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co's Fukushima plant, triggered by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, has sparked debate about the role of nuclear power in quake-prone, resource-poor Japan, as well as concerns about power shortages with 35 of the nation's 54 reactors now halted.
