TAIPEI, Taiwan — Hualien County and Hsinchu City voiced opposition Wednesday to the import of food products from regions of Japan affected by the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
During an interpellation session with county-level councilors, Hualien County Magistrate Fu Kun-chi signed a letter of commitment to “reject food products from nuclear disaster zones.”
The letter was presented to Fu by Kuomintang (KMT) councilors Pan Fu-min, Ho Li-tai and Hsu Shu-yin during the session, and the county magistrate agreed to sign it immediately.
“The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) keeps calling for a nuclear-free homeland, yet wants citizens to eat food from nuclear disaster zones. This shames the country. Those who really love Taiwan would never allow these products into Hualien to harm our residents,” Fu stated. [FULL STORY]
