Australia has suspended exports of live cattle to Indonesia after video footage showed brutal treatment of such animals at slaughterhouses there.
A local Australian TV station last week aired a documentary showing cattle being flogged and taking minutes to die after their necks were slashed repeatedly, prompting an outcry in the country.
On Wednesday, the government said it will enforce an initial six-month suspension of shipments of live cattle to Indonesia until the country takes measures to end the practice.
It also says it will make sure that Australian live cattle are slaughtered appropriately in other importer countries, including Japan.
NHK has learned that the International Atomic Energy Agency will ask Japan to provide a more transparent report on the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
NHK obtained the draft of a statement what will be announced at a meeting of ministers from IAEA member nations, scheduled to open on June 20th.
The 4-page draft calls on Japan to accurately report the nuclear crisis and share its assessment with the world so that it can learn from the accident.
It also calls on the UN nuclear watchdog to draw up concrete plans based on the ministerial debate to create international arrangements to promote the safety of nuclear power.
The draft also takes the different energy policies among the member nations into consideration. It notes that some countries have decided to scrap their reactors following the accident in Japan, while others are continuing to use nuclear power to meet energy demands.
The member nations will work out a statement based on the draft at the upcoming ministerial meeting after holding working-level discussions.

IAEA to survey radioactive contamination in sea
The IAEA, the UN nuclear watchdog agency, is to survey the long-term effects of the spillage of radioactive water from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power on the maritime environment in the Pacific Ocean.
The International Atomic Energy Agency made the decision at a regular meeting of board governors in Vienna on Tuesday.
Australia, South Korea and Indonesia will lead the survey on possible sea pollution in the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea.
The survey will collect samples of radioactive substances in sea waters and will compare them with data collected before the nuclear accident in Fukushima.
The maritime survey will be conducted over 4 years, beginning in July.

Semasa musim sekolah ni, nak pegang komputer lama sikit pun susah sebab anak-anak ada kat rumah.
Ha ha ha. Facebook? Seropa aje malasnya.
Twitter aje yang selalu update - twitter box di kanan blog menceritakan segalanya.
Benarlah ada orang kata blogging semakin menjauh dengan ujudnya facebook dan twitter terutama blog peribadi. tetapi saya tetap suka blog terutama melibatkan maklumat alam sekitar serta politik kerana ianya lebih bebas dan tidak terhad untuk pengisiannya. Ada juga blogger yang tiada akaun facebook atau twitter sebab takut (?) blog akan menjadi usang.
