TOKYO (AP) — The head of the U.N. nuclear agency says Japan should work harder to address international concerns about leaks of contaminated water at its crippled Fukushima nuclear plant and that his agency will jointly monitor radiation levels in the nearby ocean.
International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano told Japan’s top nuclear regulator today that it is crucial that the country share data with the international community to address concerns over the safety of Japanese waters and fish. South Korea recently imposed a ban on fish from the area.
