TOKYO — Japan plans to call for a cut in its contributions to the United Nations from 2007 as it is unlikely the country will obtain a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council for now, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported Sunday.

In a speech at a U.N. General Assembly session opening on Sept 19, Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura will effectively demand the cut by highlighting the need to review contributions by U.N. members, the newspaper reported. In 2005, the U.N. budget, or contributions from U.N. members, totaled $1.83 billion, of which $338 million, or 19.47%, came from Japan.
