can work together to contribute greatly to resolving global issues of peace and prosperity in the region.” President Yoon Seok-yeol said that public health and safety are the top priority factors, and requested the participation of Korean experts in real-time sharing of monitoring information on the entire discharge process of contaminated water and inspection of the discharge process. In addition, he demanded that the release be stopped immediately and that Korea be notified immediately if the concentration of radioactive substances exceeds the standard. Japanese Prime Minister Kishida mentioned the IAEA final report that the discharge plan of contaminated water meets international standards, and reiterated that there is no discharge that has adverse effects on health and the environment. He also said he would immediately stop releasing if the concentration of radioactive materials exceeds the standard.
However, there was no immediate response to requests for real-time information sharing or participation by Korean experts.

He also said that we should work together in the process of rebuilding Ukraine.
