» IAEA experts criticize the response of the Japanese government on the radioactive water leakage

The Japanese government on Sept 27th was criticized by some nuclear experts at a briefing held on the sidelines of IAEA’s annual assembly over its attempt to stem the leak of radioactive water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

At the meeting held by the Japanese government, a Slovenian expert said all Japan has been doing for a long period of time was to store contaminated water in tanks, questioning whether it has found a solution to the problem.

A French expert highlighted that the Japanese government sometimes did not immediately disclose information about leakage cases. The expert said Japan could have publicized information promptly and accurately through avenues such as Twitter.
