My remarks that the treated water—the water that has been treated to remove radioactive substances—into the Pacific Ocean are still widely reported by the mass media. I would be glad if many people would realize the importance of the issue through these reports, and sincerely hope that those who are interested in this issue will start a discussion. My remarks were evaluated favorably on the internet, fully supported by the Sankei Shimbun editorial of September 17, and reported in TV Asahi’s nightly news program ‘Hodo Station (News Station)’. I have been encouraged by the mass media’s considerably favorable comments on my remarks. I will continue to provide explanations whenever necessary.
My remarks on the need for discharging the treated water stored at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station into the Pacific Ocean are still widely reported by the mass media.
