Wang made the remarks in response to stories that the Tokyo Electric Power Company, the plant’s operator, has just lately initiated procedures of harm evaluation for victims in Japan of the wastewater’s launch into the ocean, which started on August 24.

“The Japanese side should not only take seriously the concerns of its own people, but also the grave concerns of the international community, especially its neighboring countries,” stated Wang.

He urged Japan to behave responsibly and constructively to speak with stakeholders and take their professional declare for injury dedication and compensation critically.
