EU-ministers discussing situation in Japan
The earthquake in Japan is one of the subjects discussed at a meeting of EU Foreign Ministers in Hungary. The Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt told Swedish Radio News that he and his European colleagues are awaiting information from the International atomic energy agency IAEA as to what needs to be done.
"Of course we are all prepared to give the help that we can to Japan. It does depend on what happens on the nuclear side, at the moment we know very little about it. But Japan has very well functioning authorities in this area, and we do have a well functioning international co-operation, so essentially this should work," Bildt told Swedish Radio News.
