BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry said on Friday it was concerned by Japanese moves to discharge contaminated water into the sea from a quake-crippled nuclear plant and urged its neighbor to protect the marine environment.

"As Japan's neighbor, we naturally express our concern about this. We hope that Japan will act in accordance with international law and adopt effective measures to protect the marine environment," ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement.

"China is closely following developments, and at the same time carrying our specialized assessment, and will continue maintaining close contact with Japan. We ask that Japan reports the relevant information to the Chinese side in a swift, comprehensive and accurate way."
