International Prosecution Section Doc. No. 1032 March 29 1946 Analysis of Documentary Evidence Description of Attached Document Title and Nature: File from Foreign Ministry containing carious reports and entitled “Miscellany.” Date: 1940 Original (x) Copy ( ) Language: Japanese Has it been translated? Yes ( ) no (x) Has it been photostated? Yes ( ) no (x) Location of Original (also Witness if applicable) as of: Document Division Source of Original: Foreign Ministry Persons Implicated: Crimes to which document applicable: Summary of relevant points (with page references): Included among the articles are the following. 1. Japan’s statement that she doesn’t intend to become involved in the European War and that as a feature of settling the China Affair, belligerents voluntarily withdraw troops from China. In return, Japan will do her utmost to protect nationals of these countries living in China. 2. Communication between German Ambassador OTT and Vice Minister of the Foreign Office TANI, in which TANI answers OTT’s question about Japan’s recognition of WANG’s Chinese new government by replying that it will be done as soon as possible. 3. Withdrawal of the troops of the belligerents from China in case of the Italian’s participation in the European War. When the European war broke out in September last year, Japan advised the belligerents in China to withdraw or to disarm their troops and boats voluntarily. That the European War spread to the Far East is a great obstacle to the Japanese policy of non-involvement in the European War (from a conversation between German Ambassador OTT and the Japanese Foreign Office.)
