CNN reported that the relevant agencies in the administration of President Joe Biden are evaluating reports of a nuclear leak from a power facility in southern China that includes two nuclear reactors.
This comes after a warning issued by the French company “Framatum”, which participated in the construction of the facility, in which it spoke of an imminent radioactive threat.
The French company accused Beijing of raising the permissible limit of radiation outside the Taishan nuclear power plant in Guangdong province to avoid its closure.
CNN said, in an article published today, that it had seen the content of a letter carrying these accusations sent by the French company to the US Department of Energy.
For its part, the French company announced that it is monitoring a “performance problem” at the Chinese Taishan plant, adding that it participated in its construction within the permissible operating and safety scope.
