IAEA and Japan agree on ongoing safety review of Fukushima water

TOKYO (Reuters) – The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has agreed with Japan on a continuing safety review of the discharge of treated water from the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the IAEA said in New York on Sunday.

Japan began releasing treated radioactive water from the power plant last month <9501.T> of Tokyo Electric Power in Fukushima, sparking a diplomatic dispute with China, Japan’s largest trading partner.

The Chinese embassy in Japan has repeatedly said, most recently on Sunday, that it is not invited to take part in the international framework to monitor water from the Fukushima power plant, which it describes as “contaminated.”
