IWC condemns Sea Shepherd's actions
"The commission and its contracting governments do not condone and in fact condemn any actions that are a risk to human life and property in relation to the activities of vessels at sea," it said in a statement.
Sea Shepherd and other antiwhaling groups have repeatedly harassed the Japanese whaling fleet to interfere with the hunt. Japan kills about 1,000 whales every year under an internationally-approved research program.
The meeting came as strains between members of the commission worsen. Japan, Norway and Iceland lead a group keen to reintroduce commercial whaling, but other members remain firm in their stance against it.ニュースの続きは、
