70th Conference Series (11)
Address of Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, Representative of Japan
Given at The Greater East Asian Conference held on November 5, 1943
December 19, 2016
So far I have introduced addresses from representatives of six participating countries. The seventh is by Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, the representative of Japan. Actually, his address was given immediately after the opening of the Greater East Asian Conference. Since I feel that his address is inclusive and representative of all of the addresses, I present it here last.
He states “The need of upholding international justice and of guaranteeing world peace is habitually stressed by America and Britain. They mean thereby no more and no less than the preservation of a world order of their own, based upon division and conflict in Europe and upon the perpetuation of their colonial exploitation of Asia.”
If you read through his address, you will understand why Japan rose to fight against United States and Britain and why six Asian independent countries joined Japan’s fight.
