BEIJING - China's 15 operational nuclear power reactors are in a safe status, says a government report issued on Tuesday.

Launched by the Ministry of Environmental Protection as a summary of China's environmental conditions in 2012, the report gave the remarks while elaborating on the country's enhanced efforts regarding nuclear safety and radiation protection.

China has 29 nuclear power reactors under construction, and their construction quality is being well controlled, the report says.

It adds that the country has 19 nuclear reactors that have been built for civil research purposes only, and they are also in good condition.

In October 2012, the ministry publicized a national plan on nuclear security and the prevention and treatment of radioactive contamination for the 2011-2015 period and a vision for 2020. The country is aiming to upgrade the security of its nuclear facilities and devices employing nuclear technologies to a new level by 2015, according to the plan.
