Yomiuri wrote that Economy, Trade, and Industry Minister Kajiyama held in-person talks with IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi in Vienna on Thursday. The two officials agreed on an IAEA plan to begin in September reviewing the safety of TEPCO’s plan to discharge treated water into the ocean from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The paper speculated that Japan is hoping to use the agency’s endorsement of safety to gain local fishermen’s understanding of the plan amid strong opposition from China and South Korea.
