Recent reports revealed that Australia has deserted scientific plans for the activity or industry of hunting and processing whales. It has been reported that country has followed decision taken up by South Korea, which is supposed to increase the pressure on Japan to carry out things similar as they have done.
It has been confirmed that South Korea has abandoned the plans, after reports were released in Seoul today. Detailed reports suggest that the decision was made by the President and Prime Minister of the country, during a meeting held on Tuesday.
However, earlier South Korea was in favor of whaling for the purpose of scientific research, but after the movement was criticized by non-whaling nations and environmentalists, it decided of scrapping the plans. On the other hand, critics believed that the plans were not being raised for scientific purposes; instead they were for commercial whaling.
Previous reports suggest that the country has been long since involved in commercial whaling. However, it was banned in 1986, since then commercial whaling has not been carried out, but whaling for scientific purposes has not been banned.
However, a senior government official said, “Discussions between governments ministries have been concluded in a way that effectively scraps the plan to allow whaling in coastal waters”.
