In a recent report, it has been cleared by Foreign Minister Bob Carr that South Korea is very much keen to follow green growth, thereby putting an end to the fear that South Korea might go ahead with its so-called "scientific" whaling.
While asserting that South Korea is very much capable of spearheading the issue, Senator Carr said that his counterpart Kim Sung-Hwan has assured that they would be considering recommendations given by the International Whaling Commission (IWC). "Korea has committed itself to green growth, and is capable of becoming a global green superpower”, said Senator Carr, in the East Asia Summit of foreign ministers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
It has already been indicated by a senior official with South Korea's Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries that Seoul was not that supportive of the program. It has been known that there has been a lot of buzz after announcement was made about the program and countries like Australia, the United States and New Zealand had come forward to oppose the same.
However, there are countries like Norway and Iceland, which are still continuing with the program despite the opposition. With so much of negativity surrounding the program, it appears that this program would have to be scrapped in some time.
