IAEA experts to travel to Japan

Tokyo, Feb 7 (Prensa Latina) A team of experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will travel to Japan next week to supervise work related to the Fukushima power plant, official sources informed today.

A statement said Monday that among the issues to be verified is the release into the sea of treated radioactive water from the affected plant, set for the spring of 2023.

During their stay in the country, scheduled for February 14-18, the experts will assess the safety of releasing contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi plant nearly 11 years after the disaster caused by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in the area.

The Chinese and South Korean governments, as well as the local fishing industry, continue to oppose the decision, as reported by the Kiodo news agency.

The arrival of the IAEA experts was originally scheduled for mid-December, but had to be postponed due to the high level of contagion caused by Covid-19.
