“Please drink” treated Fukushima water: China asks Japan’s minister

China on Wednesday asked Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso to drink treated radioactive water accumulated at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, after he said it is safe to drink it.

“A Japanese official said it is okay if we drink this water, so then please drink it,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters, adding Japan’s ignorance of the ecological environment is “totally unjustifiable.”
