Korea in Favor of Using Whale Resources

South Korea is in favor of utilizing whale resources but cannot say whether it agrees with whale hunting, Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Oh Keo-don said Monday.
Oh told reporters after the opening ceremony of the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) 57th assembly meeting that South Korea supports the rescinding of Sub-Section e, Section 10 of the IWC treaty stating the suspension of commercial whaling, but does not back whale hunting.
