In the last century, Japanese diplomacy has been the lesser partner of two major forces arising out of her remarkably rapid modernization-military expansion and economic growth. In the first period, geographical propinquity and imperial ambitions led to aggrandizement at the expense of continental neighbors. Since 1945, Japanese diplomacy has aimed at maintaining friendly relations with all trading partners and at upholding the international environment which has been so conducive to the nation's economic growth. The Security Treaty with the US has enabled Japan to maintain a minimum armed force, but pressures are mounting to expand defense spending.
