Japan ensures that there is no contamination in the fish analyzed in Fukushima

Date: May 26, 2024 Time: 09:24:25

The Government of Japan has signed that the first analyzes carried out on marine animals in the Fukushima area after the discharge of water from the nuclear power plant have not detected any presence of isotopes, in an attempt to appease the misgivings of other countries.

The spill began on Thursday and the Japanese authorities had already clarified that the levels of tritium – the only isotope that has not disappeared after the treatment of contaminated water – are minimal in the entire surrounding marine area.

The Fisheries Agency has affirmed this Saturday that the analyzes of several fish in a radius of five kilometers next to the plant have not detected tritium, after countries like China have limited the import of fish and shellfish for fear of contamination. reports the Kiodo agency.

The Japanese Ministry of the Environment plans to release on Sunday the results of water samples collected in a wider area, within a radius of 50 kilometers. The process is also being monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which has promised to carry out its own tests.

In the political arena, the leader of one of the parties that make up the government coalition, Natsuo Yamaguchi, has announced a postponement of the official trip he was planning to make to China next week, after Beijing requested it.

The Komeito party explained in a statement that, “given the current situation of relations” bilaterally, the Chinese side considered that “this is not an appropriate time for the visit,” reports the Bloomberg news agency. Yamaguchi was supposedly going to carry a letter from Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida addressed to China’s President Xi Jinping.
