[Global Network Report Trainee Reporter Li Lushan] According to Yonhap News Agency, relevant personnel from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Korea reiterated their position on the Japanese government’s confirmation on the same day that the Fukushima nuclear contaminated water is expected to be discharged into the sea around the spring and summer of 2023, saying that they must insist on protecting the health and safety of the people. Put it first, and ensure that Japan handles nuclear-contaminated water in a safe and consistent manner with international laws and standards from an objective and scientific perspective.

  Yonhap News Agency quoted Japan's Kyodo News Agency as saying that the Japanese government held a cabinet meeting at the prime minister's residence on the same day to discuss the disposal of nuclear-contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant of Tokyo Electric Power.

The meeting confirmed that after the completion of equipment construction and inspection by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Commission, it is expected to start the nuclear contaminated water discharge plan "around this spring to summer".

The report mentioned that the meeting also decided to pass a new fund of 50 billion yen to provide support for Japanese fishers affected by the discharge of nuclear contaminated water into the sea.

  Recently, the Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO for short) insisted on going their own way and continued to advance the preparations for the discharge of Fukushima nuclear contaminated water into the sea, and they continued to be widely condemned and questioned.

The international community generally believes that Japan's actions are extremely irresponsible, which will cause radioactive pollution to the marine ecological environment and ultimately endanger human health.

Various parties urged the Japanese government to study alternative treatment options.

  Regarding Japan's discharge of nuclear-contaminated water into the sea, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Mao Ning previously stated that the discharge of nuclear-contaminated water into the sea is by no means a private matter of the Japanese family.

We once again urge the Japanese side to pay attention to the legitimate and reasonable demands of the international community, fully consult with neighboring countries, Pacific island countries and other stakeholders and relevant international organizations, and effectively dispose of nuclear-contaminated water in an open, transparent, scientific and safe manner, and accept the Strict supervision by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
