Suga: Govt. to rein in radioactive water problems

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20130826_24.html


Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary says the government will do more to help contain radioactive water leaks at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

Yoshihide Suga said on Monday that it's unacceptable to have contaminated water leak from the plant's storage tank and flow into the ocean.

He pointed to poor management as a likely cause. He said this case is different from the contaminated groundwater now seeping from the plant into the ocean.

Suga said the government needs to play a more active role in taking countermeasures.

He said industry minister Toshimitsu Motegi was instructed several weeks ago to involve the government in solving this problem. This includes earmarking public money to tackle the storage tank leak.

Suga dismissed the idea that the leakage will negatively impact Japan's bid for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. He said the foreign ministry should be providing proper information on the matter.
