"The election outcome was due to the Australians sentiment against the (Australian Premier John) Howard administration in blindly following George W.) Bush on every issue," said Japan's opposition chief Ichiro Ozawa.
He also expressed his regret over the Japanese reluctance in compelling their leaders to change the country's pro-Us policies.
Australian Labor Party leader, Kevin Rudd, won elections last Saturday.
He said he would move quickly to keep his election promise of bringing Australia's 550 front-line troops home from Iraq.
