Chinese President Xi Jinping called Biden to wish a 'speedy recovery' from COVID, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated during a briefing in Beijing on Friday.

'I would like to express my sincere best wishes to you when I learn that the President has contracted a novel coronavirus. I hope you will get well soon,' President Xi Jinping said during the call, Wenbin shared.

Additionally, a spokesperson commented on the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) of Japan's approval of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)'s discharge plan for treating the Fukushima nuclear accident contaminated water.

Wenbin said China once again urges the Japanese side to earnestly fulfil its international obligations to dispose of nuclear contaminated water in a scientific, open and safe manner.

"If the Japanese side insists on putting its self-interest above the international public interest and taking a dangerous step, it will certainly pay a price for its irresponsible behaviour and leave a historical stain," the politician added.
