China warned of it and now takes severe measures against Japan

Several neighboring countries have expressed their dissatisfaction with the discharge of wastewater from the Fukushima plant, but China has gone a step further and has taken measures in this regard.

The Beijing government, which is one of the main buyers of Japanese marine products, has announced that it will block the importation of these products into the country .

The Tokyo authorities have reiterated on various platforms and media that the released water does not pose any risk to ecosystems , a position supported by many scientific experts.

However, critics of this measure have made it clear that more investigations are needed and that the dumping should be stopped.

Approximately one million tons of water, which has previously been stored in tanks inside the plant, will flow into the ocean over the next 30 years.

For two years, China has been the country that has most opposed this measure since it was announced by Japan. The Chinese government has described the decision of the Japanese government as “extremely selfish and irresponsible”, alleging that they are leaving an unresolved problem to future generations of humanity.

After issuing this statement, China’s customs office has announced that the existing ban on the import of marine products from Japan’s Fukushima region and other nearby prefectures is immediately extended to all seafood from Japan, with the aim of safeguarding the health of Chinese consumers.

This measure has been designed with the intention of impacting the Japanese economy and even Tokyo has recognized that the companies involved in this industry will be affected by this issue.

Indeed, China and Hong Kong together import more than $1.1 billion worth of seafood from Japan annually. This is equivalent to half of the total exports of this category for Japan.
