Japan is putting water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. A 2011 earthquake and tsunami damaged the plant. Japan said the water is safe and would not harm the environment. The International Atomic Energy Agency said the water meets international safety standards.

Japan's neighbours are angry. China has banned seafood from Fukushima. China says releasing the water is wrong. It said Japan is only thinking about itself and not the world. Hong Kong is worried about food safety. It will stop buying some Japanese food. However, South Korea said the water meets international standards.
