China firmly opposes and strongly condemns Japan's releasing of nuclear-contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the sea, and will take all necessary measures to safeguard public health, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.

Japan's unilateral decision to discharge the nuclear-contaminated water into the sea is an extremely selfish and irresponsible act, which China firmly opposes and strongly condemns, Ministry Spokeswoman Shu Jueting said at a news conference.

Such an act will cause unpredictable damage and harm to the global marine environment and further exacerbate the safety risks of Japanese food, Shu said, adding that China will resort to all necessary measures to safeguard food safety and public health.
