PM Lee calls for prudent decision by Japan on water from Fukushima plant Updated: 2018-10-02 18:05:41 KST

Seoul's Prime Minister expressed serious concerns over reports that Japan is planning to dump water into the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear power plant which was badly damaged seven years ago.
In Tuesday's Cabinet meeting, Lee Nak-yon noted that 80 percent of the water from the plant has been deemed by the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, to be too contaminated to be released.
However, TEPCO adds, the water has been treated.
The PM urged Japan to make a prudent decision, and instructed the relevant South Korean ministries to convey the government's position on the matter.
He stressed the ocean does not belong to any one country, but a resource to be shared by the world, and that dumping such water would have a big impact on the marine environment.
