Pyongyang, October 23 (KCNA) -- Japan is going to bring a terrible disaster to mankind again.
Recently, media of Japan reported in chorus that the Japanese regime has stiffened its resolve to discharge water contaminated by radioactivity from the Fukushima Atomic Power Plant into the sea and is about to officially decide it at a Cabinet meeting within October.
Despite strong opposition of Japanese people and the international community, the Japanese authorities are going to discharge at least 120 tons of contaminated water lingering in the atomic power plant.
The gravity of the issue is that more than 70 percent of the contaminated water still contains radioactive materials like cesium and tritium beyond the tolerable limits.
In case Japan discharges such seriously harmful contaminated water into the sea, it will reportedly pollute the waters near Jeju Island within months and the whole East Sea of Korea within a year, and turn the whole Pacific into "the sea of death" at last.
Japan has already done a great deal of harm to mankind by failing to prevent the accident at the Fukushima Atomic Power Plant in 2011, which caused massive leakage of radioactive materials into the sea.
At that time Tokyo Shimbun reported that the amount of radioactive leakage in the accident at the Fukushima Atomic Power Plant was 140 to 190 thousand times greater than the one in the accident at an atomic power plant in the U.S. in 1979.
The Japanese regime was quoted by Japanese media as saying that all problems "have been solved" regarding the disaster of the Fukushima Atomic Power Plant. However, tens of thousands of people are still suffering hardship in shelters due to environmental pollution and the number of cancer cases is on the increase among those who returned home, owing to radiation.
Not content with having done grave harm to the world ecological environment, Japan is going to unhesitatingly discharge a large amount of radioactive waste into the sea. It is an open challenge to international convention and an unethical crime endangering the existence and safety of mankind.
This brings to light the true colors of Japan, an illegal state, which doesn’t scruple to destroy the environment of the earth and endanger mankind in a bid to attain its egoistic goals.
