[March 08, 2023](Reported by Epoch Times reporter Li Jing) The CCP’s official media has recently continued to report on JapanFukushima Nuclear Power PlantWastewater discharge event.Embassy of Japan in ChinaRecently, he accepted an interview with the CCP’s official media on matters related to the discharge of wastewater from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. However, the Japanese side later accused the CCP’s official media of taking it out of context and pointed out that the current tritium content of the wastewater discharged by China’s nuclear power plant exceeded the Fukushima plan by as much as 7. times.
CCP’s official media reports out of context Embassy of Japan in ChinaThe full text of the public interview
In April 2021, the Japanese government proposed that it willFukushima Nuclear Power PlantThe accumulated nuclear wastewater will be diluted and discharged into the sea after two years. Subsequently, the CCP officials continued to criticize the Japanese government. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said that the ocean is not Japan’s trash can, and the Pacific Ocean is not Japan’s sewer. The Japanese side should not make the world pay for nuclear wastewater treatment.
“zhejiang daily“Ushio Shimbun,” a subsidiary of the media, published an article titled “Irresponsible Japan is planning to discharge 1.3 million tons of nuclear sewage into the ocean” on March 2. “Chao Shimbun” stated that it recently interviewed the Japanese embassy in China in writing on matters related to the discharge of nuclear polluted water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, and the Japanese embassy in China responded to the questions raised.
In the above article, the Japanese embassy in China stated in its reply that the diluted ALPS (Advanced Liquid Processing System) treated water finally entered the sea.
Regarding the safety of marine release, the Japanese embassy in China stated in its reply that the concentration of tritium in diluted ALPS treated water is not higher than 1/40 of the limit standard, and radioactive substances other than tritium are lower than 1/40 of the limit standard. 100. That level is lower than emissions from many nuclear power plants in countries overseas.
However, “Chao Shimbun” said that Japan’s statement is untenable. The official media stated that the discharge of nuclear-contaminated water containing radioactive substances into the sea will “be the first to bear the brunt of the fishery” and will also “affect global trade.” The media claimed that Japan had opened the “Pandora’s Box” and asked, “Why should the whole world pay for the troubles of one country?”
The Japanese embassy in China stated through its Twitter account on March 3 that recently, our embassy has accepted the “Tepco Electric Power Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant’s release of ALPS treated water into the ocean.”zhejiang daily‧Tide News’ written interview. However, it is very regrettable that the report issued by (Chao News) on March 2 only intercepted a part of the answer from our library, and failed to fully and correctly reflect its content. Therefore, our library published the full text of the interview reply.
The Japanese embassy in China mentioned that the (Chao Shimbun) report stated that “the Japanese embassy in China has not given any reply or clarification regarding the impact on fisheries and fishermen in neighboring countries and regions.” But in fact, the embassy has already The reply clearly stated: “The results of the radiation environmental assessment based on international standards and guidelines show that the release of ALPS treated water into the ocean can fully ensure safety for humans and the environment, taking into account bioconcentration and long-term accumulation. “
“When the diluted ALPS treated water is released into the ocean, it is expected that the total amount of tritium released each year will be controlled at the level before the Fukushima nuclear accident (below 22 megabecquerels per year).” The Japanese embassy in China stated that although It was not mentioned in the (Chao News) report, but the museum also clearly stated in its reply that the total amount of tritium released into the ocean is expected to be much lower than that of Zhejiang province.Qinshan Third Nuclear Power Plantreleases from China’s nuclear power plants.
Recently, our embassy accepted a written interview from Zhejiang Daily Ushio Shimbun regarding the release of ALPS treated water from Tokyo Electric Power Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant into the ocean. However, it is very regrettable that the report issued yesterday (March 2) only intercepted part of the answer from our library, and failed to fully and correctly reflect its content. Therefore, our library published the full text of the interview reply. (1/6) pic.twitter.com/SiUlauW6W5

Japanese embassy reveals that China’s nuclear pollution is 7 times higher than that of Fukushima
In the supplementary note of the Japanese embassy in China, the annual tritium emissions of China’s four nuclear power plants are listed in detail: Guangdong ProvinceYangjiang Nuclear Power PlantAbout 112 MB (2021); Fujian Ningde Nuclear Power Plant about 102 MB (2021); Liaoning Hongyanhe Nuclear Power Plant about 90 MB,Qinshan Third Nuclear Power PlantEmissions are as high as about 143 MB (2020). The Taiwan Maanshan nuclear power plant is only 35 MB.
In response to the above-mentioned tritium emissions from China’s nuclear power plants, the Japanese embassy in China revealed that “in fact, these releases have not reached agreement with neighboring countries.” The amount of tritium discharged from the above-mentioned Chinese nuclear power plants is as high as 4.1 to 6.5 times the amount of tritium discharged in the Fukushima plan.
Netizen: Chinese people will never know what is happening at China’s nuclear power plant
After the Japanese embassy in China published the above-mentioned tweet, many Chinese netizens left messages in the comment section, “The emissions from the Fukushima nuclear power plant are indeed bad. But (the Chinese Communist Party’s official media) first blamed themselves and blamed others. Discharge standards, how to monitor to ensure compliant discharge, unannounced accidents, and release standards for aquatic radiation. Diverting attention is a strong point.”
“The media of the CCP’s dictatorial government is just like the evil organization of the CCP: it likes to cover up its own evil with lies and discredit democracy with lies.”
“There are no news media in China, only propaganda agencies in China, and your clarification will be blocked in China, please remember it in the future, don’t believe even a single punctuation mark when the Chinese Communist Party says.”
“It’s not just the Qinshan Nuclear Power Plant. The operations of all nuclear power plants in China are opaque and classified as state secrets. Anyone who inquires will be arrested and executed secretly. The Chinese will never know what’s going on there.”
“Believe in the rigor of the Japanese. The people inside the walls are still eating potassium iodate salt, eating chemical food, and breathing poisonous air.”
Hong Kong media once revealed that the Daya Bay nuclear power plant’s sewage is ten times that of Fukushima
On April 14, 2021, the Hong Kong media searched the official information of the CCP and found that the 49 existing nuclear power units in China will all dump nuclear wastewater into the sea. At the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant, which is only 50 kilometers away from Hong Kong, the upper limit for the discharge of radioactive tritium is ten times higher than that of Fukushima, Japan.
According to an approval document issued by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the Communist Party of China in 2017, the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base has a total of six units, and the annual liquid tritium emission limit reaches 225 MB, which is ten times the future annual emission of Fukushima.
According to the report, as of the end of 2020, China has 16 nuclear power plants with a total of 49 nuclear power units in operation. There are already four nuclear power plants within a radius of 200 kilometers of Hong Kong alone, including Daya Bay, Ling’ao, Taishan and Yangjiang. How much nuclear wastewater do they discharge every year?
