According to a Taiwanese media report on April 15, Taiwan’s “representative to Japan” Hsieh Chang-ting recently posted on his personal Facebook account about Japan’s “nuclear waste water”, because the full text not only contains no words “against” or “protest” against Japan. He even tried to use attacks on the Chinese mainland to divert the anger of the Taiwanese people. For this reason, some politicians and people in Taiwan Province scolded Hsieh Chang-ting for being too infatuated with Japan, and his name was “representatives in Japan” as “representatives to Japan.”
On April 15th, Hsieh Chang-ting responded in an exclusive interview with the Taiwan Provincial media, saying that those who said that he was flattering Japan were simply “inferiority complex and self-abuse”. Xie Changting also used mainland China as a “shield” as always, saying that mainland China did not express any protest, “because they knew not to poke a beehive.”
However, compared with the Taiwan authorities’ “just take care of him” and “small curses to help” on the issue of “nuclear waste water” discharge in Japan, mainland China can be said to be a real “full firepower” and has been fighting for many days. Japan has made fierce criticisms and even plans to take further substantive countermeasures.
On April 13, when the Japanese government officially decided to discharge nuclear waste water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant into the ocean, which is harmful to the marine environment. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China said immediately, “The highest level of nuclear accident occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The waste water produced is completely different from the waste water from the normal operation of the nuclear power plant. Otherwise, the Japanese side would not need to seal the water tightly in a jar over the years. .”
At the same time, Zhao Lijian listed the opinions of various parties on nuclear waste water entering the sea to the Japanese media and emphasized that the Japanese side should respond honestly to the opinions of these authoritative institutions and experts. The sea fell over. As a close neighbor and stakeholder of Japan, China expresses serious concerns about this. China will continue to work closely with the international community to monitor developments and reserve the right to make further responses.
