The Manchurian Agreement

Posted by on October 11, 2021

This doctrine of non-recognition proved incredibly ineffective in the face of Japanese aggression and expansion. Japan had extended its influence in Manchuria for years and had now officially controlled the region. In addition, after the successful conquest of Manchuria in 1932, the Japanese attacked the city of Shanghai. Since Shanghai was home to China`s largest international colonies, the sudden invasion also threatened foreign concessions. Stimson responded to this development by stating that the United States would no longer be bound by the naval limitation agreements due to Japan`s violation of the Nine Powers Treaty. This meant a potential new naval arms race in the Pacific, which would inevitably attract the Japanese, but it did not change the situation in Manchuria. As the United States sought its own solution, it also sent an unofficial delegate with the League of Nations group that investigated the incident. The resulting report, written by the Lytton Commission, shared responsibility for the conflict in Manchuria between Chinese nationalism and Japanese militarism. Nevertheless, the report said it would not recognize the new state of Mandchoukuo, as its creation violated China`s territorial integrity and, therefore, the Nine Powers Treaty to which many prominent members of the league have attached themselves. When the Lytton Report was ratified by the League in 1933, the Japanese delegation left the Ligarat and never returned to the Ligarat. The Chinese and Japanese signed a ceasefire, but this agreement left control of Manchuria to the Japanese. That is why, in early 1932, Minister Stimson released the Stimson Doctrine. This doctrine states that the United States would not recognize any treaty or agreement between Japan and China that violates U.S.

rights or agreements signed by the United States. The Japan-Mandchoukuo Protocol (September 15, 1932) was signed between Japan and the State of Mandchoukuo on September 15, 1932. The treaty confirmed Japan`s recognition of the Manchukuo state after the Japanese invasion of Manchuria in 1931 and the establishment of a Manchurian state on March 1, 1932. The treaty also defined a mutual defense agreement that allowed Japanese troops to deploy to Manchukuo and thus effectively occupy the country.
