The recent occurrences of natural disasters in the Asian region have become the international issues, and the global cooperation has been demanded even more dearly. Among them, Korea, China and Japan are the major countries in the Asian region that these are the countries to resolve the international safety issued through cooperation while they are the major actors to bring out the international cooperation in the disaster control.
