Japanese politicians deadlocked Friday in their acrimonious debate about whether this nation had committed aggression in World War II, forcing them to postpone a self-declared deadline to craft what now promises to be a meaningless statement on the past. The impasse over history, however, bodes ill for the current course of this nation, as it could shatter the three-party coalition that rules Japan, said Kosuke Uehara, the Socialist Party's chief negotiator with the two other coalition partners.

Carefully walking up to the podium, Yong-Soo Lee, a former sex slave for the Japanese Imperial Army in World War II, faced American church leaders at Wilshire Presbyterian Church. She bowed deeply to pay her respects. Then Lee, immaculate in white Korean attire of ramie, gave a capsule testimony of her abduction during the war, when she was 16, and the unspeakable pain and degradation she suffered.

Capping a week of defeats for Japan, the International Whaling Commission on Friday turned down a request that whalers in four Japanese coastal villages be allowed to kill 320 whales in the coming year. The action came on the final day of the commission's annual meeting and prompted a strongly-worded protest from Japan, which has opposed the international moratorium on commercial whaling since it was approved by the commission in 1982 and took effect in 1986. "A lot of suffering is being created under this moratorium decision by the commission," said Kazuo Shima, the Japanese delegate.
