On 2/21/2013, Tepco released their report that was submitted to IEM held by IAEA from 1/27 to 2/1/2013.

In this report, Tepco admitted, they cannot deny the possibility that molten fuel debris were scattered to recirculation pipes, suppression chamber or torus room.

(cf, [Column] 3 facts to support the hypothesis that fractured nuclear fuel is in individual stages of nuclear reaction [URL 1])

They estimate the defueling process takes up to 10 years to start and up to 25 years to complete. 

In the end report, they are asking for the international advice and counsel.
