The Japanese government officially decided on the 13th that the nuclear sewage from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant will be filtered and diluted before being discharged into the sea. South Korea responded quickly. According to Yonhap news agency, the South Korean government held an emergency meeting of undersecretals (vice ministers) of relevant departments on the 13th. The South Korean government expressed strong regret over Japan’s decision to discharge nuclear sewage into the sea, saying it would take all necessary measures for national security. Meanwhile, South Korean media and netizens are angry. Some South Korean media directly criticized Japan for “defiling the earth and destroying mankind” in the headlines. Some netizens said that the Japanese government’s move is to let the world die together, and some netizens suggested that South Korea should break diplomatic relations with Japan.
After the Japanese government officially announced the discharge of nuclear sewage into the sea, many South Korean media such as Yonhap and Hanzu Daily reported intensively.
Yonhap: Japanese government decides to discharge Fukushima nuclear sewage into the sea
“Korean national daily” said that the Japanese government decided to forcibly discharge nuclear sewage into the sea in response to overwhelming opposition from the international community and domestic public opinion. According to the report, the biggest problem of discharging into the sea is the safety of nuclear sewage. Some critics believe that the Japanese government has decided from the beginning to adopt a low-cost way of “discharging into the sea”, but has not seriously considered other countermeasures. According to the report, the Japanese government ignored the overwhelming opposition voice in China. In addition to South Korea and China, which are close to Japan, the United Nations is also worried about this.

South Korea’s “financial news” is concerned that Japan’s nuclear sewage will soon arrive in Jeju and have an impact on seafood. According to the report, a simulation study conducted by the kirchhofz Marine Science Research Center in October last year showed that Fukushima nuclear sewage would reach Jeju 200 days after it was discharged into the sea, and reach Qianhai in the East China Sea 280 days later. Fukushima University and Kanazawa University in Japan also published similar results, the report said.
