Amid questions raised over the safety of China's nuclear plant near Hong Kong, the country's government informed on Wednesday that the reactor contained five broken fuel rods, but no radioactivity leakage. Radiation occurred inside the No. 1 reactor at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province, but it was stopped by a well-planned barrier. This information was given by the Ministry of Environment here through its social media account.
The Hong Kong government said it was monitoring the plant. Also questioned the officials in Guangdong in this matter. In fact, its French colleague had told about the increased level of noble gases in the reactor on Monday. According to the CNN report, the US is now taking account of this leak, because radioactive elements can cause huge destruction and if the air is toxic, it can affect neighboring countries. Experts say that the fuel rod broke and the radioactive gas started leaking.
Let us tell you that China had built this nuclear plant in collaboration with a French company. A French company called EDF and this company have a 30 percent stake in the nuclear plant. The French company gave information about the radiation from the nuclear plant and asked America for help. The French company had told about this 4 days ago, but China rejected this statement of the French company.
