All papers reported on an agreement reached between Japan’s research whaling organizations and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SS) on a court-mediated settlement in the U.S., under which the environmental group will permanently stop obstructing Japan’s research whaling fleet. Although the Japanese side is relieved by the news, the SS’s branches in such nations as Australia and the Netherlands are set to continue their anti-whaling activities because the settlement only covers the U.S. branch. The international community’s criticism of Japan’s research whaling remains strong despite the latest agreement with SS.
