Environment ministers from Japan, China and South Korea agreed Wednesday to cooperate on management and reuse of disaster waste, with Tokyo offering to share its experience from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that hit northeastern Japan and other disasters.

“Japan would prepare an opportunity among the three countries to share experience and know-how on disaster waste management,” said the joint communique adopted by the ministers following their two-day meeting in Shizuoka, where they also discussed air pollution and marine trash.
