Tokyo -Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has reportedly assured that issue of the radioactive water leaking from the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant is under control and measures are being taken to address the problem.

Abe said that the Japanese government will continue efforts to tackle the problem with multiple preventive measures.

According to the Japan Times, Abe reiterated that there were no-cause-for-alarm assessments of the situation at the Fukushima plant, which suffered three reactor-core meltdowns shortly after it was hit by the 2011 Japan Earthquake and monster tsunami.

Head of the Democratic Party of Japan, Banri Kaieda said that Abe should be more careful about assessing the situation at the plant and criticized his remarks as being ‘extremely flippant’.

The report said that the radioactive water is increasing daily at the plant as groundwater flows into reactor buildings and mixes with water used to cool the three crippled reactors.

Some of the contaminated water is kept in around 1,000 tanks set up at the site, and Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco) is struggling to prevent spills from the storage tanks and curb its flow into the Pacific Ocean, the report added.
