Any chance for enjoying that region sea food delicacies?

This shows transparency between TEPCO, the J Govt and the IAEA.

Much more cooperation you will get from China.

The seafood will be much safer than anything from the middle kingdom too!!

Is there anything to see that wasn't there months ago?

Earlier this year, the IAEA reaffirmed that the water release is consistent with international safety standards in its full report on the issue after saying in a safety report before the discharges began that the water would have "a negligible radiological impact on people and the environment."

Instead of being a whitewasher for international big business execs like at TEPCO who have had their negligence subsidized by the public, the IAEA needs to force corporations to pour resources into safer tech like molten salt reactors stat.

Take him to the deepest bowels of the reactor. Let’s get his expert opinion. No photo ops.

China, which has opposed the water release, imposed an import ban on Japanese marine products after it started.

Purely political and mean spirited. China is already illegally fishing in Japan's waters.

Excellent!

They will discover the extent of the ongoing leaks and unfortunate incidents that TEPCO has been experiencing all this time. Negligent errors such as leaving the radioactive waste faucet open need to be addressed and managed effectively.

You mean those leaks that were made public by TEPCO?, those same leaks and incidents that TEPCO has kept informing and making public to everyone know about it, even the IAEA? So Mr. Grossi will find out what the IAEA already knows?

Is that some sort of time travel shenanigans?
