Posted in: U.S. warns Japan child custody laws could harm bilateral ties See in context

Actually the majority of countries in the world have not signed the Hague, and several of the minority that signed it have not ratified it.

As to the diversity of the countries that have signed, they are in North and South America and Europe. Most of the countries in Asia (like China and Japan) and the Middle East have not signed it because it conflicts with cultural, religious, or existing legal standard. Of the G8, Japan is the only Asian culture, and at least two of the other G8 countries have been accused of non-compliant behavior in enforcing the Hague. Japan is not unique in having a problem with this treaty, neither is it unique in not signing it into law. Japan should not sign a treaty it will be unable to comply with after ratification.
