Transport ministers from 21 countries adopted a joint declaration at a meeting here Friday, urging international cooperation and technical assistance to developing nations to slash greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector.

Developing countries as well as developed ones should reduce carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases from aircraft and ships in accordance with their reduction capabilities, said the declaration.

The participating countries, including Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Russia and the United States, are ready to help the International Civil Aviation Organization formulate a plan by the end of 2009 to cut greenhouse gas emissions in areas of air and maritime transportation, said the document.

They will make efforts to fight against climate change by such means as the development of fuel-efficient aircraft and vehicles, it said.

The two-day meeting opened Thursday. In a speech at the opening of the gathering, Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso noted that how to strike a balance between development in the transport sector and environmental conservation is one of the challenges that the world is faced with.
