DPJ wants Diet to debate leakage

Diet debates on Fukushima tank leak asked




Japan's main opposition Democratic Party wants the Diet to debate the leakage of radioactive water from a storage tank at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Senior DPJ officials met on Monday to discuss the crisis in which contaminated water may have leaked into the ocean.

Some expressed concern that the government's response has been too slow despite the seriousness of the problem.

Others said the government must investigate the leaks immediately and take necessary measures.

The lawmakers decided to call on other opposition parties to jointly demand the government take up the matter in the Diet, even though the Diet is in a closed session.

They will also dispatch their own inspection team led by former foreign minister Koichiro Gemba. He heads the DPJ's task force on the nuclear crisis.

Party President Banri Kaieda told reporters that the government has failed to acknowledge the seriousness of the problem.

He urged the government to actively work to maintain its credibility in the international community.
