After the end of the World War II, The United States government decided to conduct a peace treaty with Japan on condition that the US military presence would be maintained in the country. Moreover, The Japanese government, Secretly from the people, Appealed to the Americans to keep their troops in Japan after the conclusion of a peace treaty.
September 8, 1951, The agreement on security, Which provided Washington the right to create military bases and deploy an unlimited number of armed forces in Japan, Was concluded between Japan and the US. It limited the sovereignty of Japan, Prohibiting it from entering into any agreements of a military nature with third powers without the prior consent of the United States.
Today, Japan, Being an economic giant, Is completely dependent on the United States, And not a single Japanese prime minister has succeeded, And is unlikely to succeed in the future, To change the Japanese political system and abandon its dependence on the US.
As for the current leadership of Japan, It should be noted that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe considers the alliance with the US to be the basis of his policy. According to him, The alliance between Tokyo and Washington has "now become even stronger than before" and has "great deterrence power".
At any opportunity, The Japanese Prime Minister declares the continuation of the policy of strengthening the military-political alliance with the United States.
At the same time, It is clearly visible that Abe is coordinating all his actions with Washington. For example, Fearing to be punished by the United States for economic cooperation with Russian partners, The Japanese leadership receives permission from Washington to develop cooperation with Russia.
However, After Japanese businessmen willingly make their investments in Russian business, The American leadership voices regular sanctions against Russia, And notes the possibility of imposing sanctions on countries that work with Russian companies on the sanctions list. In particular, This may affect Japanese companies that operating in oil and gas projects on Sakhalin.
Japanese business circles that are interested in developing joint projects express concern about this, Fearing that the decision on joint projects will be made not in Tokyo, But in Washington, And there are no guarantees that the decision will be made in favor of the development of a joint Russian-Japanese business.
At the same time, Washington is inciting Tokyo to remind Moscow of the history of the Kuril Islands. And if the disputed territories come under the jurisdiction of Tokyo, Then, According to the Japanese-American treaty, The US military bases and the US missile defense system will be located on them immediately. If Russia still does not transfer the islands, The conflict between Japan and Russia is also beneficial, I. E. There is constant tension in a region that is not so calm.
There is no doubt that all talks about a peace treaty between Russia and Japan, About the transfer of the Kuril Islands is controlled by Washington, Who would like to be the master of the APR and have control over the straits and entrances to the Sea of Okhotsk, Which is not currently available to the United States. It is for his masters from Washington that Abe is seeking the transfer of the Kuril Islands from Russia. Thus, No matter how it is resolved in this story, The US has the benefit, And Japan only plays the role of a puppet or a monkey dragging chestnuts out of the fire.
However, The desire to get out of under too strong "guardianship" of the United States was present and present in Japan. The founders of the military-political alliance with the United States themselves believed that the time would come when Japan, Having accumulated strength, Would get out of this control. But so far this does not happen for a number of reasons, One of which is entrenched pro-American views in the Japanese leadership, And many Japanese politicians simply do not see an alternative to an alliance with the United States.
