US Gov. Requested Dumping of Japan’s Radioactive Water
Tokyo, May 18 (Jiji Press)–A Japanese special cabinet adviser has said in public that low-level radioactive water was dumped into the sea from the crippled nuclear power plant at the request of the U.S. government, informed sources said Wednesday.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. began the dumping of low-level radioactive water from its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant on April 4 in order to secure space to store highly radioactive liquid found at the plant. The Japanese government failed to issue prior notices on the action to the international community properly, drawing criticism from neighbouring nations such as South Korea and Russia.
