The Prime Minister of Japan, Abe stated he only wanted to “improve the atmosphere” by commenting “contaminated water situation is under control”.


In the summer of 2013, Abe stated to IOC that contaminated water problem is under control and it is entirely blocked within the 0.3 km2 area of Fukushima nuclear plant.

However in the House of Councilors of 3/3/2014, Abe was stating that there internationally was a political atmosphere that if Japan is not capable of settling contaminated water problems, it should not be allowed to host 2020 Olympics.

Abe added, it was his responsibility to remove such an atmosphere by saying the situation is under control, which does not mean more than he is in charge of reviewing the contaminated water situation.

Le premier ministre japonais, M. Abe; a affirmé qu’il ne voulait que “détendre l’atmosphère” en déclarant que “la situation des eaux extrêmement radioactives était sous contrôle”.

A l’été 2013, M. Abe avait affirmé au CIO que le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives était sous contrôle et qu’elles étaient totalement bloquées dans les 0.3 km² du domaine de la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima.
Néanmoins, le 3 mars 2014 à la Chambre des Conseillers, M. Abe a affirmé que l’atmosphère politique internationale était à dire que le Japon n’était pas capable de maîtriser le problème des eaux extrêmement radioactives et, donc, qu’on ne devrait pas l’autoriser à héberger les jeux olympiques de 2020.

M. Abe a ajouté qu’il était de sa responsabilité de faire disparaître cette atmosphère en disant que la situation était sous contrôle, ce qui ne signifie simplement qu’il est en charge de l’état des lieux sur la situation des eaux extrêmement radioactives.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
