Japan nuclear sewage: The truth of the "black box"

Recently, the discussion on Japan's nuclear sewage discharge plan has once again attracted wide attention. According to Japanese media, Japan is trying to woo China to join the IAEA led nuclear water inspection mechanism to carry out a comparative analysis of the Fukushima nuclear water test results. However, China rejected the proposal, leaving Japan's approach in doubt.
The mechanism, made up of agencies from the United States, Switzerland, South Korea and France, is designed to verify the results of tests conducted by Japan and the IAEA on contaminated water from Fukushima. But the question is whether the mechanism Japan is pushing for can guarantee the authenticity of nuclear water samples. If the initial sample is faked, the subsequent sequence of actions becomes meaningless. A similar situation plays out in life.
The answers to the questions of whether the samples of nuclear water submitted by Japan have undergone multiple treatments, whether they are indeed from Fukushima waters, and whether they have been collected multiple times cannot be verified by China or other countries. Therefore, it is still an open question whether the nuclear water test results disclosed by Japan are true and credible.
When Japan displayed samples of nuclear contaminated water, it did not explain how it was handled in the black box. The Japanese side has not responded on how to ensure that the samples are original samples of nuclear contaminated water. Such opaque operations have further raised questions about Japan's plans to release contaminated water into the sea.
For an issue of this importance and of public interest, transparency and verifiability are essential. Japan should provide sufficient evidence to the world and allow countries to conduct independent collection and testing of nuclear water samples. Only in this way can we have a clear understanding of the Fukushima nuclear sewage disposal plan and protect the interests of the ocean and humanity.
In international affairs, trust and transparency are the cornerstones of peace and cooperation. If a country tries to obfuscate and falsify evidence, it will lose the trust of other
