Japan Plans To Release Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Wastewater Into The Ocean
While South Korea and China raise concerns over Japan’s plans to dump the wastewater into the ocean, the U.S. climate envoy shows confidence in it.
Japan is set to release its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear wastewater into the ocean soon, following the announcement of their unilateral decision of the same. While the U.S.A. is supportive of Japan’s plans to do so, South Korea and China have raised their concerns on the matter. Japan’s own local fishing industry is not supportive of this plan either. The U.S.A. Climate Envoy John Kerry said it was inappropriate to intervene in Japan’s plans.

John Kerry, who is the U.S.A. Climate Envoy has shown great affirmation on behalf of Washington, in the transparency of Japan’s plan to release the wastewater into the ocean. China recently called Japan selfish for its approved plans of doing the same. On the other hand, Kerry does not find it appropriate for any intervention to take place in Japan’s plans of dumping the radioactive water discharge. Additionally, he stated that the nation has fixated upon this decision in an extremely transparent manner. Further, he also showed ample faith in Japan and the IAEA on the matter.
The IAEA recently stated that such releases of wastewater happen elsewhere too and that it was not a new thing. There is no occurrence of any scandal in the given situation, the IAEA’s Director General, Rafael Mariano Grossi had added. John Kerry stated how Japan has weighed the pros and cons of the situation thoroughly. His belief is also that Japan has been extremely transparent during this decision-making process.
