File - In this March 9, 2011 file photo, Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano gestures during a news conference at the prime minister's official residence in Tokyo. Former Chief Cabinet Secretary Edano was named Japan's new trade and economy minister Monday, Sept. 12, 2011. Edano replaces Yoshio Hachiro, who resigned Saturday, Sept. 10, after just eight days in the post after he was widely criticized for calling the area around the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant a "town of death."
