Academic urges China to bolster nuclear safety, Caixin says

China is not prepared to deal with potential internal threats to its nuclear safety, reported Wednesday, citing Harvard nuclear research associate Zhang Hui. He said China should bolster its defenses against potential theft or loss of nuclear materials and improve its basic design for nuclear facilities. In addition, the government should conduct more scenario-based crisis simulation exercises and strengthen practical safety training, Zhang was quoted as saying.
