IAEA, Japan agree on continuous safety review of Fukushima water

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) agreed with Japan on its continuous safety review of the discharge of treated water from the wrecked Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the IAEA said on Monday in New York.

Japan started releasing treated radioactive water from Tokyo Electric Power’s (9501.T) Fukushima plant last month, sparking a diplomatic spat with China, Japan’s biggest trade partner.
