We Talk: New Zealanders say Japan should consider other countries' interests

Global Stringer


The fourth round of discharge of nuclear-contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant will begin in late February 2024, with a total release of 7,800 tonnes, local media reported on December 18. Japan has so far completed three rounds of nuclear discharge, sending more than 23,000 tonnes of nuclear wastewater into the Pacific Ocean in less than three months.

CGTN Stringer recently took to the streets of Christchurch, New Zealand to find out what people think about the Japanese government's release of nuclear-contaminated water. Some people said Japan should have considered the interests of other countries and reached a consensus with neighboring countries before dealing with the contaminated water.
