Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida ate fish from Fukushima to show it was safe after the release of radioactive water. It reports The Japan Times.
"It is very good", — Kishida said as he chewed on a piece of flounder sashimi. He urged the audience to also enjoy the "safe and tasty" Japanese seafood.
In addition, the prime minister ate cooked pork, fruits, rice and vegetables from the Fukushima region.
The video of the prime minister eating fish appeared after China banned all seafood imports from Japan. Japan demands that China — its largest fish market — lifted the ban on seafood imports, while warning that it would file a complaint with the World Trade Organization.
The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, confirmed on August 30 that the water discharged into the ocean is safe.
< p>Earlier BAGNET reported that on August 24, 12 years after the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, the Japanese authorities started pouring radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.
This decision was made after ten years of waste storage at the NPP site.
