The head of the U.N. atomic agency has toured Japan’s tsunami-wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant and endorsed Tokyo’s plans to release treated radioactive wastewater into the ocean, saying that it meets international standards and will have minimal impact on health and the environment. But in Seoul, China’s ambassador is raising concerns that the move could spark an arms race in the region. The Korean government summoned him to explain his comments. In other international news, a top North Korean official vows to build up the country’s nuclear capabilities, despite signals earlier in his reign that he would support denuclearization.
