New Zealand and Japan discuss whaling issue

New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Murray McCully has told his new Japanese counterpart that he hopes their two countries can find a diplomatic solution to Japan’s whaling.

The issue of whaling was raised in a meeting this week between Mr McCully and Fumio Kishida, Tokyo’s new Foreign Minister.

The talks were held despite New Zealand’s decision to join Australia’s International Court of Justice case to try to force Japan to stop whaling, which takes place at the end of this month.
