(Update 2) G-20 Agrees on Framework to Cut Marine Plastic Waste

   Karuizawa, Nagano Pref., June 16 (Jiji Press)--The Group of 20 advanced and emerging economies on Sunday agreed to establish an international framework to cooperate in reducing marine plastic waste.
   The G-20 energy and environment ministers adopted a joint statement to wrap up their two-day meeting in the central Japan resort town of Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, from Saturday, in which the agreement was reached.
   The statement noted "recent developments highlighting concern about energy security" after Thursday's attacks on two tankers, including one operated by a Japanese company, near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
   The document also emphasized "the importance of resilience, protection and development of reliable energy infrastructure to prevent energy supply disruptions."
   The G-20 ministers reaffirmed the commitments of signatories to the Paris Agreement to fully implementing the pact to fight global warming. Negotiations continued until the last minute on the wording related to the issue, over which the United States and the European Union were sharply divided.
