Expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) Japan's continued defiance of International Whaling Commission (IWC) requests to halt its scientific whaling program undermines international efforts to conserve and protect the world's whale populations; (2) such behavior calls into question the credibility of commitments made by the Japanese Government to international organizations; and (3) the President should not support Japan's appointment to a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council until Japan stops whaling and complies with IWC requirements.
