Apparently the Japanese Trade Deficit Was Because of "Illegal Sanctions on Iran"...

In searching for data on Japan's trade deficit, I found a headline worth reposting from the Tehran Times.  Sometimes you have to love the humor provided by state controlled media...

From the article:
Japan has turned to fossil fuel alternatives and increased its energy imports after its nuclear reactors were shut for safety tests following last year’s crisis at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima. 
Earlier in the month, former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama told Press TV that his country is paying a high price for the illegal US-led oil sanctions against Iran. 
Crude prices have been increasing following the illegal sanctions on Iran’s energy sector and the persisting Israeli publicity campaign of threatening unilateral military strikes against Iran.
