Against Russia in line with this policy Hiranuma refused Germany a urgent pleas to announce a general military Alliance before Adolf Hitler s Alliance effective Only against Russia. Meantime the British had rejected Russia s proposal for a general military Alliance among Britain Russia and France effective in Asia As Well As in Europe. This gave Germany the opening she wanted and Berlin reportedly notified Tokyo that German soviet agreement was possible. The extreme japanese militarists who always had favored a general Alliance with Germany because of Britain s support of China then complicated the situation by a Savage Aerial attack on chunking in which Hie British ambassador to China narrowly escaped injury.
