Japan will submit its long overdue annual contribution to UNESCO by the end of the year

Under the threat of violating international laws and hurting its global reputation, Japan will submit its long overdue annual contribution to UNESCO by the year-end, according to government sources. The government’s decision also reflects concerns that its continued refusal to pay could allow China to hold more sway in UNESCO, while eroding Japan’s standing in the organization. Tokyo has held back its annual obligatory contribution of 3.85 billion yen ($32.63 million) after the Paris-based organization decided last year to add Chinese documents concerning the 1937 Nanking Massacre to its Memory of the World Register. Japan paid its voluntary contribution of 770 million yen in November.
