Singapore lifts ban on food imported from Fukushima | GlobalPost

Singapore has decided to lift a ban on food imports from Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, where the disaster-struck Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is located, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Saturday at a meeting with his visiting Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

In response, Abe expressed his gratitude and said, “It gives Fukushima great courage,” Japanese government officials said.

Singapore stopped importing food products from Fukushima after the massive earthquake and tsunami of March 2011 triggered one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters at the Fukushima Daiichi complex in northeastern Japan.

Abe and Lee, meeting on the sidelines of an Asia security conference in the city state, also agreed on the need to resolve international disputes peacefully amid China’s territorial claims against neighboring countries in the South China Sea.
