US concerned over South Korea`s whaling plan

South Korea`s plan has drawn criticism from Australia, New Zealand and other countries which have opposed Japan`s whaling in Antarctic waters.



Washington: The US on Thursday expressed concern about South Korea`s plan to start what it called a "scientific" whaling programme in the Pacific Ocean.
"We remain committed to the moratorium on commercial whaling," Xinhua quoted State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell as saying at a news briefing.

"We plan to discuss this with the South Korean government," he added.

South Korea`s plan, announced on Wednesday during talks of the International Whaling Commission in Panama, has drawn criticism from Australia, New Zealand and other countries which have opposed Japan`s whaling in the Antarctic waters.
