Russia is ready to share with Japan its experience of managing consequences of natural and industrial catastrophes
Russia is ready to share with Japan its experience of managing consequences of natural and industrial catastrophes, said Yuri Brazhnikov, director of the Russian Emergency Ministry's international activities department, who is taking part in the World Conference on Disaster Reduction, which opened in the Japanese city of Kobe on Tuesday. He said that on Monday he had met chairman of Japan's national public security commission Yoshitaka Murata, who is responsible for disaster consequences management. Murata thanked the Russian leadership for the aid Russia had provided to the citizens of Kobe ten years ago when an earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale killed 6,433 people and left over 300,000 residents of this port city homeless. "In 1995 Russia was the first country to respond to the disaster of its Far Eastern neighbor," Murata emphasized. He said he intended to visit Russia soon to discuss possible cooperation with the Emergency Ministry. Russia is ready to share with Japan and other countries its experience, including early alert about typhoons and tsunamis, Brazhnikov said. Such a system is now deployed in Kamchatka and Sakhalin, but can be improved with Japanese technologies, he added. Earlier Brazhnikov had said that this spring the Emergency Ministry might hold a conference on natural calamities and industrial disasters protection with the participation of the EU member states.
