Japan is preparing to launch whale hunts around the globe.
According to the BBC News, "Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said Japan will step up efforts to resume its annual whale hunt in the Antarctic."
PM Abe is quoted as saying that, "I want to aim for the resumption of commercial whaling by conducting whaling research."
As reported by the BBC News, "In March, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that the whaling programme was not for scientific research as Japan had claimed. Australia, backed by New Zealand, brought the case against Japan in 2010."
Tokyo claims the whale hunts are purely for scientific purposes.
