Japan PM to hold press conference, talk about energy policy-media

TOKYO, July 13 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan will hold a news conference at 0900 GMT on Wednesday, Kyodo news agency reported.

The prime minister is expected to talk about steering the country away from its reliance on nuclear energy and towards renewable energy sources, media said.

Kan, under fire over his response to the March 11 earthquake and subsequent nuclear crisis, has said he will resign but will stay in his post until a bill on renewable energy law and two other bills are passed. (Reporting by Shinichi Saoshiro; Editing by Joseph Radford)
