believed that all nations of the world should find their places
"Throughout that period, Japan had made honest efforts to keep the destruction of war from spreading and, based on the belief that all nations of the world should find their places, had followed a policy designed to restore an expeditious peace between Japan and China."
A Quote by Hideki Tojo
"I would point out that the cultural advance of these people has been suppressed in the past and continues to be suppressed in the present by policies designed to keep them in ignorance."
During this period, Japan's peaceful commercial relations were successively obstructed, primarily by the American rupture of commercial relations and this was a grave threat to the survival of Japan.
