Japan, Ukraine to jointly tackle nuclear disasters
The foreign ministers of Japan and Ukraine have agreed to step up cooperation in studying the effects of the nuclear disasters each country has experienced.
Leonid Kozhara received Fumio Kishida on Monday in Kiev.
The ministers agreed to share knowledge on the disasters at Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986 and Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2011.
They also agreed to promote a plan to study the spread of radioactive material in Fukushima using Japanese micro satellites launched with Ukrainian rockets.
Kishida told reporters he hopes Japan and Ukraine can work together to face their challenges.
