China Issues Travel Warnings to Japan over Fukushima Nuke Leak
   2016-06-07 19:27:04    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Fei Fei

China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued notice to its citizens warning of safety problems regarding the Fukushima nuclear leak, said the ministry¡¯s spokesperson.

Hong Lei also urged Japan to explain to the world with a responsible attitude on the impact of the leak.

Hong said: "Japan should explain clearly to the world with a responsible attitude. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued notice reminding people of the related safety problem and I believe Chinese citizens will make proper arrangements for their tours and well protect their own safety."

He noted that the number of visas issued to Chinese nationals in 2015 was 3.78 million, accounting for around 80 percent of the total number of visas issued and exceeded the total number of visas issued to all nationals in 2014 (approximately 2.87 million).

The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., on June 1 admitted, for the first time ever, that its insistence on simply calling the tragedy "nuclear reactor damage" in the past five years had "hidden the truth."

According to Ken Buesseler, marine radio chemist with the U.S. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the consequences of the Fukushima nuclear incident were "unprecedented," since over 80 percent of the leaked radioactive substances have flown into the sea.
