TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's idled nuclear reactors could resume operations after passing the initial stage of stress tests to be conducted to ensure safety and reassure the public after the Fukushima disaster, the government said on Monday.

The four-month-old disaster at the Fukushima plant, which is still leaking radiation, has sparked a public debate about the role of nuclear energy in earthquake-prone, resource-poor Japan, which relied on atomic power for nearly 30 percent of electricity supply before the crisis.
