Australia Expected to File ICJ Action Week Against Japan for Whaling

Australia has reportedly exhausted all diplomatic efforts with Japan over its whaling program.  Radio Australia reports that Australia is expected to file a case against Japan this week in the International Court of Justice. 

Radio Australia also reports that New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully said that his government share's Australia's concerns over Japanese whaling but that New Zealand would continue diplomatic efforts for the time being rather than joining the case or filing its own case against Japan.
