Chapter Summary

The Russo-Japanese negotiations after the conclusion of the war between the two belligerents affected Japan's annexation of Korea. This chapter strongly emphasizes the second Russo-Japanese Convention and its surrounding international relations from 1905 to 1910. The Anglo-Russian negotiation was made to alleviate mutual dissatisfaction in Central Asia and the Near East, yet it gave Russia an opportunity to approach Japan in East Asia. The second Russo-Japanese Convention was an expression of their natural response against American penetration into Manchuria. It was also the result of the failure of an American approach toward Russia that attempted to make use of the rival opinions of Izvolskii and Kokovtsov, Russian Minister of Finance. The momentum of the conclusion of the 1910 Convention arose from Russian military-strategic considerations in East Asia. The two Russo-Japanese negotiations revealed the complicated conflict of interests in the international power politics in East Asia, particularly over Manchuria and Korea.
