Tokyo, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) began its second visit to Japan on Monday to supervise the safety of the release of radioactive water from the Fukushima 1 nuclear power plant.

During the first day of the inspection, which will last until November 18, the IAEA team met with senior officials from the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, and the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) in charge of the project, local media reported.

The director of the IAEA Department of Nuclear Safety and Security, Gustavo Caruso, acknowledged the responsibility of the Japanese Government in the safe handling of the radioactive water but stressed that the international body also wants to carry out an objective and scientific evaluation in the field.


Incidentally, in the coming days, the group of experts, which is made up of representatives from 11 countries, such as China, South Korea, and the United States, will review the progress in building the necessary infrastructure to process the contaminated water inside the power plant and its subsequent discharge.

The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (2011) caused an unprecedented atomic accident in this Asian country.
