Tokyo, Oct 23, 2020, SPA -- Japan will send a new team of experts to Mauritius to work out long-term measures to help the country recover from damage to its environment and fisheries following a major oil spill caused by a Japanese freighter in July, Kyodo cited the Foreign Ministry as saying today, on Friday.
The team, including officials from the Japan International Cooperation Agency, will leave Japan on Saturday and join disaster relief personnel sent earlier. It will carry out two months of surveys to work out an aid package, the ministry said.
