Japan to work with IAEA on radioactive wastewater
Japan and the UN's nuclear watchdog have agreed to work together to dispel global fears over radioactive wastewater at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
Japan's Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Toshimitsu Motegi met in Tokyo on Wednesday with International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano.
Motegi stressed the importance of highly reliable monitoring of radioactive substances in the wastewater, as well as quick public disclosure of accurate information.
He sought help from the IAEA in these areas.
Amano said he believes the crippled plant is generally in stable condition, and promised to cooperate with Japan in monitoring the wastewater.
