According to a report published by Newsweek on June 14, the US government assessed the allegations of a leak at a Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) nuclear power plant. Earlier, a French company-Framatome, which part-owns and helps operate the nuclear power plant, warned that there was an ” immediate radiological threat ” concerning this nuclear power plant. However, the involved plant denied these allegations and stated that its generators are operating normally.
CNN reported on Sunday that a letter from France-based Framatome to the U.S. Department of Energy warned that, to avoid having to shut it down, the safety authority of the communist China has been raising the acceptable limits of radiation detected outside the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province. The letter seeks to obtain a waiver to share U.S. technical assistance with the Taishan plant, claiming that the radiation limits were above French safety standards.
An anonymous U.S. official earlier told CNN that the Biden administration doesn’t yet believe the situation is at “crisis level”. However, a June 8 memo seen by CNN sent by the company’s subject matter expert to the U.S. Energy Department called the situation “an imminent radiological threat.”
“The situation is an imminent radiological threat to the site and to the public and Framatome urgently requests permission to transfer technical data and assistance as may be necessary to return the plant to normal operation,” the memo said. The memo also reportedly claimed that the Chinese company limit was increased to exceed French standards, but it is unclear how that compares with the U.S. threshold.
In Newsweek’s report, officials told CNN that the National Security Council held multiple meetings last week about the incident, and that the Biden administration and the Department of Energy had discussed the situation with the French government. Officials said that the Washington has also contacted Beijing about the alleged leak.
On Sunday Newsweek reported that Taishan Nuclear Power Plant said the accusations of dangerous levels of radiation leakage were untrue and that its two reactors met the safety requirements and were operating normally.
The Newsweek report emphasized the allegations of the leak at the plant received little attention in communist China, with no state media outlets reporting the issue and there being almost no discussion on social media platforms.
People who know the evil nature of the CCP understand that the Party will never allow the Chinese people to tell the truth about their society. Every day, the CCP uses its authorial power to suppress the people’s voice.
The Chinese people already know that opposite understanding of what the CCP regime propaganda disseminates reflects more accurately the truth of the fact. If the CCP state media outlets don’t report on something, it most certainly means that it’s true. The CCP state media outlets never have the guts to say anything bad about the CCP.
