China says not asked to take part in Fukushima radioactive water tests

The Chinese Embassy in Japan said on Monday that China has not been invited to participate in analysis and comparative testing of nuclear-contaminated water discharged from the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The remarks were made in a response to media reports claiming that China has "refused" to join the international monitoring mechanism of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

"China has reiterated the need to establish a long-term and effective international monitoring arrangement with the full participation of neighboring countries and other stakeholders," the embassy added.
