In the US, the decision of Japan to drain the water from Fukushima into the ocean is considered correct
Washington considers Tokyo's decision to drain the water purified from radioactive particles from the emergency Japanese nuclear power plant (NPP) “Fukushima-1” into the ocean as weighed and correct. This was stated by the spokesman for the US State Department Ned Price.
The United States knows that the Japanese government has explored several options with over 1.25 million tonnes of water stored in a huge number of reservoirs at Fukushima, he said. A spokesman for the US State Department also noted that the Japanese authorities weighed the pros and cons of various plans, assessed their consequences, “showed transparency in their decision and, apparently, chose an approach in accordance with generally accepted nuclear safety standards.”
“We look forward to further coordination and communication from the Japanese government as it monitors the effectiveness of this approach,” TASS quoted Ned Price as saying.
We will remind, as the website kp.ru wrote, earlier it was reported that on Tuesday, April 13, the Japanese authorities allowed the water purified from radioactive particles to be drained from the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, which was damaged by the earthquake on March 11, 2011, into the Pacific Ocean.
