” The operator of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, as well as local fishermen barred from going to sea since the accident, questioned Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s assurance to the International Olympic Committee that the problem of radioactive water is “under control.”
In a speech before the IOC picked Tokyo as host of the 2020 Games, Abe said the situation is under control, referring to the contaminated water issue, and that Japan will never allow it to cause damage to Tokyo.
In response to a question, Abe also told the IOC general meeting in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7 that radioactive water has been “completely blocked” within a 0.3-square-kilometer area in the harbor of the Fukushima No. 1 plant.
Abe’s remarks are credited with helping dispel concerns about radioactive water at the plant and securing the Games for Tokyo. Denis Oswald, an IOC member from Switzerland, said Abe’s speech on Fukushima was convincing.
