Japan, EU reiterate energy cooperation

Kyodo

Industry minister Yukio Edano and EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger have reaffirmed their commitment to reinvigorating energy cooperation, including on nuclear safety and trade in natural resources.

At the fourth Japan-EU Energy Dialogue held Thursday in Tokyo, the two agreed to work more closely to promote free trade in natural gas, including liquefied natural gas. Japan and Europe are both major importers of LNG.
