09:22, February 15, 2013

BEIJING - No artificial radioactive nuclides had been detected in northeast China as of 11 am Thursday, according to the country's environmental watchdog.

The Ministry of Environmental Protection has dispatched several radiation monitoring detachments to monitor and evaluate the environment in northeast China following a recent nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Monitoring results collected by 25 automatic monitoring stations located in northeast China's border areas showed that radiation remained at a normal level by Thursday noon, according to the statement.

The provinces of Jilin and Liaoning in northeast China share a border with the DPRK.

More than 150 radiation monitoring stations across China have been conducting real-time environmental monitoring and data collected in all provincial capitals will be released and updated daily, the ministry said in a Wednesday statement.

In addition, the ministry will also conduct integrated analysis based on both meteorological and radiation monitoring data.
