      Japanese Whaling Vessel Incursion Has Potential ?Relationship Consequences?

      The Japanese whaling vessel, responsible for sinking the New Zealand-registered trimaran Ady Gil in 2010, entered the 200 nautical mile-limit of New Zealand?s Exclusive Economic Zone in the early hours of Saturday morning, despite a request from the New Zealand government not to do so.

      New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully has called the Japanese whaling operations ?repugnant? to New Zealanders, and has indicated that the incursion of the Shonan Maru No. 2 into New Zealand waters may have ?relationship consequences? for New Zealand and Japan.
