China will assess possible threats posed by Japan’s release of contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant to the safety of related food and agricultural products and their trade, the commerce ministry said on Thursday.
 

According to plans unveiled by Japan on Tuesday, the release of more than 1 million metric tons of contaminated water into the sea from the plant crippled by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 will start in about two years after filtering it to remove harmful isotopes.
 

The plan drew immediate opposition from its neighbors South Korea and China.
 

China is seriously concerned about Japan’s unilateral decision to discharge wastewater from Fukushima into the sea, Gao Feng, the ministry’s spokesman, said at a regular news conference.
 

“We will closely follow the development of the situation and assess possible threats posed to the safety of related food and agricultural products and their trade, to ensure the safety of Chinese consumers,” said Gao.
 

China’s foreign ministry said on Thursday that China shares a common stance with South Korea opposing Japan’s action.
 

将认真评估日本核废水入海对食品安全的威胁

针对日本政府日前决定将福岛核电站事故核废水排放到海洋中一事,中国商务部新闻发言人高峰15日称,中方对此“严重关切”,将认真评估可能会对相关食品以及农水产品安全和贸易造成的严重威胁。
 

高峰在当天举行的新闻发布会上表示,日本政府不顾国内外质疑和反对,在未穷尽安全处置手段的情况下,未与周边国家和国际社会充分协商,单方面作出以排海方式处置福岛核电站核废水的决定,已经引起国际社会、特别是周边国家和民众的高度关注。中方对此严重关切。
 

他表示,中方将密切跟踪事态的发展,认真评估可能会对相关食品以及农水产品安全和贸易造成的严重威胁,保障中国消费者的安全。
