Valentinas Mazuronis, the minister of environment of the Lithuanian presidency of the European Union (EU) Council, has urged EU colleagues to sign an international convention of reduction of mercury emissions.

The document should be signed in Japan in two weeks.

"As the chairman of the EU Environment Council, Mazuronis turned to environment ministers of all EU member-states and urged them to participate in the diplomatic conference in Japan in two weeks and sign the Minimata Convention on Mercury," the Environment Ministry said.

According to the press release, the document should be signed at a conference in Japan on October 10-11. On behalf of the EU, the document will be signed by Mazuronis and European Commissioner for Environment Janez Potocnik.

The new convention will regulate the entire cycle of mercury, i.e., from extraction, processing, use and management of waste and mercury-polluted territories. Negotiations on the international agreement lasted four years.
