SINGAPORE (Kyodo) -- Government ministers from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations said Friday they have endorsed Japan's proposal for cooperation to ensure a "smart" information and communications technology network in the region.

The telecommunications and information technology ministers, in a joint statement, agreed to cooperate with Japan to realize the "ASEAN Smart Network Initiative," which Tokyo proposed in 2011 to support the 10-member ASEAN's goal to develop its ICT capacity and enhance regional "connectivity."

The ministers' two-day meeting here also involved separate meetings on ICT-related issues with ministers or deputies from Japan, China and South Korea.

Masahiro Yoshizaki, Japan's vice minister for policy coordination in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, said that through Japan's initiative, it will assist ASEAN countries to proliferate high-speed broadband in the region.
