Halting Japan's mission in support of coalition forces in Afghanistan would "send a bad message" to the international community and to terrorists, the US ambassador to Japan said Wednesday. US Ambassador to Japan Thomas Schieffer said the decision on continuing the mission was entirely in Japan's hands, but he cautioned that halting the mission could have a negative impact on Japan's efforts to raise its standing in the international community. "A permanent stop would send a bad message to the international community and to terrorists," he said. "It is important for Japan to stay involved."
