UN agencies give Japan travel the all-clear
Montreal, April 18, 2011
 

UNITED Nations organisations monitoring the effects of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi plant have issued a statement to clarify that current radiation levels pose no travel risk to Japan.

 

These agencies are the World Health Organization, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the World Meteorological Organization, the International Maritime Organization, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the World Tourism Organization and the International Labour Organization.

 

“Radiation monitoring around airports and seaports in Japan continues to confirm that levels remain well within safe limits,” according to a UN statement.

 

The global body added that the screening of radiation for health and safety purposes is currently considered unnecessary at airports and seaports around the world. It explained that the monitoring of passengers, crew and cargo from Japan in some countries did not suggest any health or safety risks.
