China Insists Taishan Nuclear Plant Radiation Levels Normal


Beijing says the safety of its nuclear power plant in southern China is “guaranteed,” following alarming reports about a fission gas leak in recent weeks.

Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for China’s foreign ministry, told reporters on Tuesday that the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province met all technical requirements. “No abnormalities in radiation levels have been detected in the surrounding environment.”

“Its safety is guaranteed,” he said.

Concerns surrounding one of the facility’s two reactors emerged on Monday, after a CNN report revealed that the plant’s French joint operator Framatome had written twice to the U.S. in June in order to obtain approval for technical assistance.

The Taishan plant’s majority stakeholder is the state-owned China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), which was placed on the U.S. entity list by the Trump administration. To assist in what Framatome described as an “imminent radiological threat,” the French firm required U.S. approval.

The Chinese government dismissed safety concerns at the site in Taishan, which is roughly 80 miles west of Hong Kong and has a population of just under 1 million. Guangdong, meanwhile, is the country’s largest province, with around 115 million residents.

“China attaches great importance to nuclear safety and has established a nuclear safety supervision system that is in line with international standards and national conditions,” the foreign ministry’s Zhao said.

He added: “China’s nuclear power plants have maintained a good operating record. There have been no incidents affecting the environment and public health.”

Reached by email on Monday, the Chinese Embassy in Washington referred Newsweek to the Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture Company (TNPC), which carried a statement that appeared to pre-empt the CNN report.

In the notice posted to the company’s website late on Sunday, CGN said continuous readings in and around the plant showed environmental indicators were “normal.”

However, despite the operator’s refutation and Beijing’s official position on the subject, there remains little media engagement in China. The country’s official news service Xinhua and state broadcaster CCTV have yet to mention the matter in either Chinese or English.

CGTN, CCTV’s international arm, carried a brief report on Tuesday claiming China had “slammed the U.S. government for a false report” on the suspected leak.

A Framatome spokesperson told Newsweek on Monday that it was “supporting resolution of a performance issue with the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong Province, China.”

“According to the data available, the plant is operating within the safety parameters. Our team is working with relevant experts to assess the situation and propose solutions to address any potential issue,” the statement added.

In a further clarification on the same day, Framatome’s owner, the majority state-owned Électricité de France (EDF), said it was investigating the report by its subsidiary.

According to AFP, the probe involves a buildup of the inert gases krypton and xenon in reactor unit 1, which EDF said was a “known phenomenon, studied and foreseen by the operating procedures of the reactors.”

An EDF spokesperson said radiation levels at the plane were below the threshold set by the Chinese nuclear safety authority, but noted it was too soon to say whether it required a complete shutdown of the reactor.

According to China’s Communist Party newspaper Global Times, the Taishan plant has two 1,750-megawatt reactors, which were connected to the grid in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

    The Swamp engineered the Jan 6 “insurrection.” This is now clear from the exposé by Revolver News (

    “If it turns out that the federal government (FBI, Army Counterintelligence, or a similar agency) had undercover agents or confidential informants embedded in any of the groups involved in 1/6, the ‘federal intelligence agencies failing to warn of a potential for violence’ looks less like an innocent mistake and more like something sinister.

    “If it turns out that an extraordinary percentage of the members of these groups involved in planning and executing the Capitol Siege were federal informants or undercover operatives, the implications would be nothing short of staggering.  This would be far worse than the already bad situation of the government knowing about the possibility of violence and doing nothing.  Instead, this would imply that elements of the federal government were active instigators in the most egregious and spectacular aspects of 1/6, amounting to a monumental entrapment scheme used as a pretext to imprison otherwise harmless protestors at the Capitol — and in a much larger sense used to frame the entire MAGA movement as potential domestic terrorists.”

    It turns out that swampling Christopher Wray’s FBI has played a major role in generating not only the Jan 6 Capitol upheaval, but also in instigating a supposed plot to kidnap the governess of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, a few months before.  FBI agents were the initial agents provocateurs in planning and preparing these so-called attempts at the alleged “violent overthrow” of government.  (These covert operations were the actual provenance of the superthreat by “White supremacists,” as Bidey called the White majority of America.)  The strategy behind these FBI-organized “domestic terror plots” was actually a Democrat-directed plan to criminalize and entrap any and all conservatives, and especially those who voted for Trump.  We now know that a great many of the “unindicted co-conspirators” of Jan 6 were in fact FBI agents working on behalf of the reptilian Democrats.

    The Republican Party and its “conservatives” issue feckless protests about “radical socialist agendas,” while the ruling elites serve up inanities through their subordinate media legions about gender and race inequalities to keep the herd from noticing the massive class protection racket those elites are running.  The Constitution means nothing, of course.  It is used strictly as a vaporous smokescreen to brainwash the masses into believing that the unparalleled destruction of the country is not happening.  The next step, now in operation via Facebook, Twitter and Google, is to gather as much information as possible, Red-Chinese style, about each and every citizen.  This can then be used to imprison him whenever the demons of the Left decide.

    Thus America circles the drain.

    That’s right Theedrich, the swamp forced those insurrectionist traitors out of bed on Jan 4th & made them drive halfway across the country to DC……Ooooo they are such nefarious plotters. The devil made me do it.

    Don’t forget they also zapped them with that Jew, mind control space lazer to make them behave like degenerate jihadist. They’re victims (like all rightwing nuts – poor things).

    LMFAO at the lengths you fucking LOSERS go to make excuses for your failed lives & atrocious behaviour. They make Chicago ghetto rats look like choir boys.

    So much for conservatives & their “personal responsibility”.

    Their one day spazz out out cost the country/taxpayer more money than than the annual welfare queen budget.

    White trash dead weight. Get a fucking job.

    Theedrich, the US is in the sewer already, followed by the UK and Australia. I read the current events of the world every morning and just shake my head when I read about the newest stupidity of the whore house called the US Congress. The Deep State made senile Biden President so they could do as they please, ending fair elections.

    Never have I been more sure that my decision, to move to the Philippines 13 years ago, was the best decision of my 77 years. I live on our farm and enjoy every day. I have not worn a face diaper more than 12 hours total, and that was when I had to go to the city. The GMO-JAB is deadly. I plan to never be in a position where I am forced to get it. I will never return to the Disunited Fascist States of America. I am happy watching the world from the Land of Eternal Summer.

    Brainwashed Famous…YOU are the reason Amerika is failing. Stupidity reigns in the LAND OF THE DUMBOCRAT. LOL

    “Never have I been more sure that my decision, to move to the Philippines 13 years ago, was the best decision of my 77 years. I live on our farm and enjoy every day.”

    That’s because you are old. You would have been happy almost anywhere, including the US.

    “Old People Are Happier Than People In Their 20s”

    “Why most people are happier in their 80s, according to an 86-year-old psychologist”

    Why? Because old people have no worries, provided they are somewhat healthy. Usually the real estate has been paid off, you have the accumulated knowledge and experience of decades in your system, you no longer are controlled by your d*ck, the children have left the house, you have seas of free time for yourself, study, hobbies, travel.

    Just completed 2 hours of light work in my vegetable garden. Repotted 30 tomato and paprika plants, water here and there. Today it will be 32C and so will be the next 2 weeks. My garden was never in a better state and hence is my spirit.

    It’s the Epicurean feeling of elementary happiness.

  7. makati1 on Wed, 16th Jun 2021 5:29 pm 

    Biden’s are you as senile as your namesake? LOL

    I guess, in 77 years, I know what I like and where I want to be, and it ISN’T in dumbed down, locked down, police state, Amerika or any other dying Western country. I am in the part of the world that is advancing, not regressing, like the West.

    BTW: Europe will soon be majority Muslim, with a minority of whites. A dying region of the world, soon to be 3rd world or worse. Enjoy!

  8. Biden's hairplug on Fri, 18th Jun 2021 2:23 am 

    China publicly boosts about its incursions into Taiwanese airspace:

    “PLA warplanes enter Taiwan air defence zone 2 days after record sortie”

    Makati cheers: “BTW: Europe will soon be majority Muslim, with a minority of whites. A dying region of the world, soon to be 3rd world or worse. Enjoy!”

    That’s what you wish, despicable half yank/half chink. But we’ll be able to get rid of you in time, together with the Russians, Chinese, Turks and Iranians, in no small measure thanks to Brexit. And of course, donkey idaho types, who keep on agitating against whitey, who at some point will revolt. And Reps against Dems means the end of America and the jews.

    Here again my favorite glimpse of the real state of America:

    You can bet that secret services around the world study these kinds of admissions too and conclude that the US is militarily a paper tiger, divided to the core on race.

    The world will be a better place if makati is put to work in a Chinese labor camp, after China inevitably invades the Philippines, before the US does. You can run, but you can’t hide for the Eurasian wrath.

  9. Biden's hairplug on Fri, 18th Jun 2021 2:40 am 

    Australian Sky News continue to make fun of Joe Biden, calls him “sleepy Joe”, as if Trump never left. One wonders how smart this is under the current geopolitical circumstances, as the US is the only guarantor for the survival of Australia as an Anglo state:

  10. FamousDrScanlon on Fri, 18th Jun 2021 12:19 pm 

    That’s right Mak, me – one middle aged whiteboy in Canada is totally the reason Amerika is failing.

    Deep insight like that is why you have so many admirers mak.

  11. makati1 on Fri, 18th Jun 2021 4:17 pm 

    Famous, every one helps the shit swirl faster if they do nothing. If no one gets their ass off the couch and does something about it, you have no one to blame but yourself.

    It is obvious you have too much free time to post shit on PO, along with some other losers here. “Let someone else do it” is the current motto of Westerners. That is why the swirl is spinning faster every day. IF living in a Nazi Germany style police state, or worse, is what you want, you will get it. Or should I say, you are getting it. The West deserves all of it. bout time! The rest of the world is cheering the collapse.

    Why is Canada’s military anywhere but in Canada? Ditto for NATO in the EU and the US. Russia is playing war games off the coast of Hawaii. Maybe China in the Gulf of Mexico next or off the coast of the western US? So be it. Pass the popcorn.

    Mak. I have free time & plenty money too;) Enough money that I’ve been retired for 10 years already. No commuting or cunt bosses for me:) I still work here & there, but only for people I know. People who are happy to deal in cash. It’s what’s provided me with the opportunity to become the worlds best troll.

    Mak, what about the many times I’ve disappeared from this site? Sometimes for 2-3 months & once for over a year. How does that fit into your little assessment of me as a guilty couch potato?

    You didn’t notice I was gone for over a year because you are a senile old fart trapped in an internet hate-N-rage time warp.

    In addition to my free time & money the other advantage I have over sad monkeys like you & tribal monkeys in general, is that I don’t care about any of it. It’s an ongoing evolutionary experiment as far as I’m concerned. I have no stake in the outcome.

    You’re an old man yet you are as clueless as a newborn – you don’t get it AT ALL. Trapped in your small minded ignorance & blame & hate. You had access to all the knowledge we’ve accumulated on how the universe, earth & the humans operate, yet your worldview is no more advanced than an illiterate medieval peasants. *Witches are to blame for the big flood that ruined the crops* BURN THE WITCH!

    Get off the couch & do something? Do what Mak? What the hell do you think anyone can do? Run away to the P’s like you? First sign off trouble in paradise & you flee to the other side of the planet & fling digital poo at your countrymen for living exactly like you did your entire life. That’s your idea of doing something? You would think a wise, all knowing sage such as yourself would have hung around & lead by example. Showed your people how to behave properly & unfuck things.

    If you want to play the blame game then there is no one more guilty than you Mr American Boomer. Most spoiled generation in history in the richest country in history. No one has had more ease, opportunity & wealth (converted into CO2) than you guys. All any of you had to do to have a nice middle class life was show up everyday.

    Do you think your daily criticism of Americans & America exonerates you? Unmakes your past? It’s obviously not working otherwise you wouldn’t be trying so hard. Guilty American Boomer with a guilty conscience.

    Sad really. Saddest part of all is that all your hate & blame are unnecessary because where America is at & the precarious state of the world could not be another way. Where we’re at is where we were headed all along.

    Who knows, maybe without the hate & blame, haters & blamers couldn’t get out of bed in the morning. Reason for being.

    Not seeing it is not a matter of intellect or morality or even ignorance – the evidence is abundant & freely available. That so many can’t/won’t get it is a testament to the power of a number of psychological evolutionary adaptions that forever trick you in a bid to protect the ego & conger meaning & purpose.

    They don’t call us the story telling ape for nothing. It’s literally what we do all day & even when we dream.

    The best way to cum is using corn. I buy them green by the dozen and I only use it once. What I do is lube it extra extra virgin olive oil prior to insert. Go slowly and I guarantee you it’s the best feeling ever. The used corn can be fed to pigs or for later cooking.

  14. urgen appeal to supertard mak on Sat, 19th Jun 2021 6:25 pm 

    this is my master treaties. i don’t waste time on this forum. it’s lame.
    this treatise is about love above. it’s love for muzzies. this is a peculiar kind of love for 7th century muzzies whose mode of transporation are magic carpets and camels like ann coulter said. thse muzzes are supremciast the best of humanity allah has created.

    muzzie bribe went with isis to make babies and now want to go back. what the world going to. this is ok but supertard big muzzie beard SAWS swt pbuh is banned from UK and harrassed by AA.

    update 6/18 supertard big muzzie beard report muzzie shamima begum in western clothing want to go back “i made bad muzzie mistakes”, yeah rite. thanks but no takiya

    supertard big muzzie beard SAWS pbuh swt reported muzzies in ger comprise of 40% of jizya payment to the tune of 4 billion euros per month. with that money they could go REAL GREEN or FAKE GREEN, it doesn’t matter that would’d been prosperious without the rapey rapey and stabby muzzies. The scale of jizya is incredible. it’s all out in the open if you just listen to the UK muzzie andy choudary.

    muzzie did london bridge 2 years ago and wore fake suicide vests because allah said kill and be kiled to get virgins, a sort of twisted suicide by cops. then muzzie did london bridge again and fake suicide vest. ht whitey supertard david wood.

    while i drove supertard rock away (i’m glad he’s back now and i apologized profusely) muzzie died like a dog died. muzzie died like a dog is not a muzzie but was burried at sea as a muzzie. muzzie died like a dog is not a dog, not a muzzie either. muzzie died like a dog burried as a muzzie.

    when i heard whitey trump used low english, it occured to me it’s a neglected form of communication and worthy of promotion. i immediately recognize genius trump and promoted him to whitey supertard trump (muzzies died like a dog). low english is something long leggged mack daddy can’t use because he thinks it would damage his high educaiton as supertard pastor manning said.

    then officer sean colier was killed by muzzie and mit scrubbed all info about muzzies on his memorial page. i also covered muzzie akbar sayeed who used low english consistently with doctrine supremacist muzzies used on infidels. whitey supertard john brady killed himself as result. awarding supertard title is only rare cases posthumously and was done by the univeristy. there are only 2 entities who can award supetard title and that’s me and the university of whitey supertard john brady.

    muzzie sabotage airliner and got loved 1000x in the form of reporting of “union dispute”. supertard big muzzie beard SAWS pbuh swtreported it’s actually jihad.

    Then in astralia muzzie with big grin and smug looking face with a hat and meat grinder practically begged to be amputated and put on muzzie hamster wheel. cops love him 100000x more and are puzzled why he did this. i’m scratching my head too which has thinning hair

    Muzzie in NZ allah acbar and went after cop with axe. Cops loved muzzie 10000x love conquer all. No tweet AOC SAWS pbuh swt , not siri Lanka, not when muzzie shot 6 cops on philadelphia. 25 billion tweet on Christchurch though

    then there we deceptions of deep green, real green, deep deep green, fake fake green, and all the permutations of green. when AOC SAWS pbuh swt – (ZOMG i’m amazed at the technology in a sink food grinder) failed, the greta SAWS pbuh swt deception kicked in. I belived everything even the fantastic flying goat story.

    for many years, centuries, million, quadrillion of years since (((supremetard))) SAWS pbuh swt created heaven and earth and before supertards SAWS pbuh swt big muzzie beard and glenn roberts put up web sites, i warned tards and supertards about muzzies.

    i made no progress sort of like banging head against concrete, concrete wins everytime

    but then i “reverted” to a supremacist muzzie jerk and I’m the best of humanity allah has created. i wear a muzzie dress and i pee sitting down holding up the bathroom line. this made supertard SAWS pbuh swt have bladder infection but the love for muzzies only intensified.

    and now i have superpower, big goat SAWS pbuh swt is feeling intense heat. all stops are pulled it seems – even supertard Robert Inget the controlled libtard opposition is deployed to censor me. but uppertard SAWS pbuh swt is not going to destroy free speech for someones love of muzzie. supertard SIS SAWS pbuh swt dropped the appeal and that’s final. it’s now as good as case law. supertard SIS SAWS pbuh is back being occupied with his bunker and learjet and auto keltecs and he said absolutely do not bother him. so it’s set in stone that uppertard SAWS swt pbuh is not going to modify this forum

    Mak, Cloggretard is just as old as you, if not older, and STUPID as his bullshit rambling shitposts are long and insipid, as well all well know. Unlike you, his fake, online persona completely dominates what little grey matter he still has working. Right now, every brain-cell cloggJUDE has still (sort-of functioning), is dedicated to maintaining his make-believe identify, and world! Along with sufficient motor functions to operate a keyboard and the like. Besides that, if you could see cloggfraud in person, and not gag from the stench, you would basically be looking at a high-functioning, senescent vegetable, probably literally glued to its laptop.

    Everything he has, or ever will say, is simply false. IE a lie. His age, his ethnicity, where he lives, his supposed ‘skills’ (besides trolling and spamming-we can give it that much credit), all of it.

    Long past time for the site to perma-ban his worthless fraud ass. Lots of other places he can spam and troll on the interwebs right?, so why’d he attach himself to our place? Fook knows….

    An absolute nightmare for him, hence his panic and resistance.

    Somehow, I don’t feel any pity for him, like I have no pity with the (rare) Colorado potato beetle in my vegetable garden.

    Define “having a life”?

    Walking up and down the road between your third world shack and the ATM, as long as the latter is willing to spit out the modest amount of first world dough, with which you can make the third world locals run for you?

    And for the rest, profess online a future of a collapsing world order (but mysteriously not China-Asia), conveniently coinciding with the probable date of the end of your life? Saving the XXL fireworks for the last, eh?

    You are a sad old f*ck, a nihilist, beaten and scared by life, who is now taking revenge against the world that vomited him out.

    Say hello to the Chinese soldiers from me, when they drive up your road, terminating the post-WW2-US-order once and for all:

    Cloggie, after 50 years of working, (14 to 64) raising a family and dealing with bullshitters like you, I am retired.
    I have a garden and my own part of the house, with all I need or want.
    I also have good health and many friends here.
    A river is just down the hill.
    Mountains and seashore just a few miles way to visit when I want. (I’m not locked down.)
    Clean air and water and all the same food I ate in the US.
    My income is as secure as it can be in today’s world.
    I am happy and enjoying my life and retirement.

    BTW: Putdowns don’t work with me as Davy found out after years of trying. The tactical officers in the Pennsylvania National Guard Officer Candidate School were much better but even they were not successful. I laugh at your feeble attempts. ^_^

    BTW-BTW: China is a lessor threat to me than your own government is to you. LOL
