In the meantime, environmental ministers from China, Japan, and South Korea have met in Japan to further cooperate in dealing with environmental challenges including climate change and cross-border pollution.

During the two-day meeting, the ministers held bilateral and trilateral meetings to stress the importance of regional cooperation amid growing environment concerns facing the region and the world.

The three countries plan to work together in fields such as containing dust and sandstorms, and management of chemicals. They also adopted a joint action plan to enhance cooperation in ten priority areas, for example, raising environmental awareness.

The meeting is the 12th annual event since the trilateral mechanism was initiated in 1999.
