Tokyo Failed to Give Full Information
India illegally Japanese food products for three months, the fish have high radiation.
Japan should acknowledge provide more information to neighboring countries on radioactive contamination in the ocean after stopping the radioactive liquid into the sea yesterday from a power plant that was destroyed.
The recognition came after South Korea and China voiced concerns about the nuclear crisis and a radioactive liquid is pumped into the sea, while India banned the importation of food products of Japan for three months.
Although it managed to stop the leak, more than 4,000 officers to detect iodine-131 Becquerel per kilogram of fish a few miles from the city Kitaibaraki, southern Fukushima plant. Fish also contains 447 Becquerel cesium-137, a more dangerous element than iodine-131 for longer.
Radioactive material detected in the sea recorded more than 4.800 times the allowable limit, but has since dropped to 600-fold. Water remaining in the reactor had radiation levels five million times more than the limit allowed.
“We are the Ministry of Foreign Trade and work together so that the detailed description provided primarily to neighboring countries,” said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano the press conference yesterday.
Moreover, even if successfully prevent leakage at a nuclear plant, engineers still need to pump 11.5 million liters of contaminated sea water back into the sea because they are lack of storage space at the facility. Sea water used to cool the over-heat the fuel rod.
Nuclear experts said the damaged reactor has not been controlled almost a month after he was hit by the earthquake and tsunami last March 11.
Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said it would prevent leakage of the liquid glass in one of the six reactors that damaged the world’s worst nuclear disaster since the Chernobyl incident in 1986.
“Leakage is slowed yesterday (Tuesday) after we enter the liquid glass and a hardening agent, and now it’s stopped,” TEPCO spokesman said.
Engineers struggled to stop leaking reactor number 2 to use the wood dust and newspapers.
However, fish contain high levels of radioactivity have been found although the Tokyo state radiation will be reduced if dumped in the sea.
“The situation is still not under control yet,” said Thomas Grieder, Aisa analyst firm IHS Global Insight.
