Some experts say such long-term release of low-dose radioactivity is unprecedented and requires close monitoring.

Who are "Some experts"?

Five nuclear power plants in South Korea release more than 350 TBq of tritium into the ocean and air each year.

2020, Liquid: 210.81 TBq, Gas: 154.09 TBq, Total: 364.90 TBq.

2021, Liquid: 220.72 TBq, Gas: 150.34 TBq, Total: 371.06 TBq.

2022, liquid: 216.26 TBq, gas: 139.75 TBq. Total: 356.01 TBq.

January to March 2023, liquid: 83.73 TBq, gas: 35.16 TBq. Total: 118.89 TBq.

The radiation concentration determined by South Korea's NRA to be discharged into the ocean is 40,000 Bq/L.

On the other hand, the radiation concentration in the treated water discharged from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is 1,500Bq, and the amount of radiation released per year is less than 20TBq.

Anti-Japan and anti-U.S. forces in S.Korea continue to make efforts to worsen relations between S.Korea and Japan in accordance with the intentions of China and N.Korea.

They don't even try to understand the other person's words, and only push their selfish claims on the other person.

Four years from now, if the candidate they endorse is elected in the presidential election, relations between S.Korea and Japan will deteriorate sharply, and relations between S.Korea and the US will also worsen.

Posted in: Japan-S Korea wartime labor dispute still far from fundamental solution See in context

In 2007, the Roh Moo-hyun administration enacted a law to aid forced laborers during the war, based on a "completely and finally settled" agreement, with more than 70,000 South Koreans receiving aid.

Regarding the implementation of this law, the South Korean government did not demand money or an apology from the Japanese government or Japanese companies.

In 2018, judges of South Korea's Supreme Court challenged to change the legal interpretation of the agreement the Republic of Korea ratified in 1965.

From January to May 2019, the Japanese government repeatedly requested the South Korean government to resolve the dispute in accordance with Article 3 of "AGREEMENT ON THE SETTLEMENT OF PROBLEMS CONCERNING PROPERTY AND CLAIMS AND ON ECONOMIC CO-OPERATION BETWEEN JAPAN AND THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA" (dispute settlement procedures), but the South Korean government did not respond to the request.

However, this time, the Yoon Suk Yeol administration also did not comply with the dispute settlement procedures stipulated in Article 3 of the agreement, but chose to settle the matter through the domestic legal system.

The reason is that they understood that the Republic of Korea would lose if they chose to settle under Article 3 of the Agreement.

South Korean Supreme Court judges appointed by Moon Jae-in have failed to change the legal interpretation of the agreement.

However, it cannot be denied that this decision may be overturned by the results of the presidential election four years from now.

There is never that the North Korean top stated, "I discard a nuclear weapon", or "I stop the development of the nuclear weapon".

The present to North Korea by Moon Jae-in is that there was not profit for North Korea.

American expert watches closely that when U.S. forward to next Step in.

In other words, subject to monitoring by the U.S. , it is that North Korea accepts possession of nuclear weapons.

In other words, it is that the United States accepts the possession of the nuclear weapon by N.Korea with the proviso that U.S. always watch it.

S.Korea moves to new era in "the nuclear weapon of the With north" and "With new coronavirus". Naturally the USFK will be reduced.

People that infection was confirmed increased, but it is 5-14 days ago that they were infected.

The meaning of "two pieces of face masks" seems to suggest future life.

The economical margin using and throwing away "a paper mask" as before in Japan seems to disappear.

It is important to Japan that economic activities continue with the curve of the infected person as flatness, and it is a wish of the Japanese citizen.

It is the people of Japan and foreigners who live in Japan that control the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

§ For you not to be infected.

・ Let's wash your hands.

・ Do not touch your face.

§ Not to infect other people.

・ Cover your mouth and nose.

The US media has reported the lack of ventilators as a political issue, but in reality there is also a shortage of equipment operators.
