China on Friday urged Japan to be cautious on its plan to deal with radioactive water from Fukushima nuclear power plant, calling for the Japanese government to make decisions based on full consultation with neighboring countries.
Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson from the Chinese Foreign Ministry, made the remarks at a press conference.
The Japanese government is set to announce, as early as Tuesday, a plan to dilute radioactive Fukushima wastewater and release it into the ocean, according to Japan's state broadcaster NHK.
The Japanese government should thoroughly assess the possible impact before releasing the radioactive water, said Zhao.
The spokesperson also called for the Japanese side to share information in an accurate, open and transparent way.
