South Koreans voiced concerns about Japan's planned release of radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean. Rep. Seo Sam-seok of the liberal Democratic Party on Monday held a forum to find ways in cooperation with neighboring countries to tackle Japan's plan to dump the contaminated radioactive water next spring. "The contaminated water released into the ocean will spread across the entire Pacific Ocean in 10 years and affect almost all of our sea. Marine pollution will be inevitable, so the government and the political circle should proactively act for the safety of people," Seo said in the forum.
