Japan has delayed the start of its next "research" whaling mission by a few days, an official said Thursday, amid media speculation the postponement was to avoid a clash with a visit by U.S. President Barack Obama.Japan had argued that its JARPA II research program was aimed at studying the viability of whale hunting, but the ICJ found it had failed to examine ways of doing the research without killing whales, or at least while killing fewer of them.Tokyo this month said it was calling off the 2014-15 hunt in the Southern Ocean but insisted it had made no decision on whether to resume its Antarctic whaling later, perhaps with a redesigned research program.
