A spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed the country’s firm opposition and strong condemnation of the dumping into the sea of contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear accident, carried out by the Japanese government. China points out that Tokyo “ignored strong doubts and opposition from the international community and unilaterally” dumped the contaminated water into the sea.
He also stressed that this issue “is an important nuclear security issue with cross-border implications, and is by no means a private matter of Japan alone.” The spokesperson commented that the Japanese side did not prove the legitimacy of the decision to discharge the water into the sea, nor the long-term reliability of the nuclear-contaminated water purification device, referring to the authenticity and accuracy of the data of the discharged liquid. “
The ocean is the common property of all mankind,” the official stressed, adding that “forcibly releasing Fukushima’s polluted water into the ocean is an extremely selfish and irresponsible act that ignores international public interests.”
