Abstract:

This report addresses the implications for the American -Japanese alliance that may flow from the evolution of Moscows relationship with Tokyo over the next decade. To this end, it traces the factors that have perpetuated the territorial dispute between Russia and Japan for many years, and their consequences for the U.S. alliance with Japan. The study examines the reasons for the cancellation of Russian President Yeltsins September 1992 visit to Tokyo, and considers the implications of the differing policies now pursued by America and Japan toward Russia. The study weighs the possible consequences for the Japanese-American relationship if the Russian-Japanese stalemate continues. Finally, it considers the implications for the United States and Japan if Moscow and Tokyo eventually arrive at a territorial settlement. The study considers information available through December 1992
