• Kono Agreement

    Posted on Dezember 11, 2020 by in Allgemein

    The agreement reaffirmed our commitment to addressing common security issues on the basis of freedom and democracy. Since then, we have come together to promote a free and open Indo-Pacific region and to impose a rules-based international order. The first community development agreement in Kono was signed in the city of Koidu, the district capital, which committed 0.25% of the mining company`s total export earnings for community development and livelihood creation. The agreement should not only significantly reduce poverty rates, but also ease tensions between businesses and the Community. Kono District in eastern Sierra Leone has the most productive mineral sector in the country, but income has not been invested in local development or job creation. Mining has degraded the environment and local livelihoods. The district has been severely affected by ten years of conflict, and in 2013 the Ebola epidemic affected prospects in the region. But community members, backed by a proposed SDG fund, were able to reach an agreement so that the mining industry could benefit communities. 1. Japan and the Republic of Korea have forged close, friendly and cooperative relations on the basis of the Treaty on Fundamental Relations between Japan and the Republic of Korea and other relevant agreements concluded by the two countries during the normalization of their relations in 1965. The agreement on the resolution of real estate and debt issues and on economic cooperation between Japan and the Republic of Korea (the „agreement“), which is at the heart of these agreements, provides that Japan grants the Republic of Korea $300 million in grants and loans of up to $200 million (Article I) and that property issues are the rights and interests of both parties and their nationals (including including legal entities) Contracting parties and their nationals are „fully and definitively regulated“ and no dispute is raised on this matter (Article II).

    The agreement has therefore so far formed the basis of bilateral relations. Q: Good morning, Minister Kono, Sorry, I — I — we did not have the translation, so I hope you can answer that question about burden-sharing again. And in practical terms, how much is the United States asking to pay Japan, how much more, and is Japan willing to pay for it? (reference) Agreement on the issue of ownership and demand and on economic cooperation between Japan and the Republic of Korea (extract) I stand to say that we have a very close relationship between the three of us.
