Says His Country Is Not Peace Disturber; Our Fleet Worries Him {EDITORS NOTE Yoailko Matsuoka, chief Japanese delegate af Geneva before Japan quit the League Assembly, has written an astonishingly frank statement for International News Service, calling upon the United States to withdraw her Atlantic scouting fleet from the Pacific Ocean as a means of improving Japanese-American relations. Tokio n e w s p a p e r s recently hinted such a request would bo made nt Washington but Mat-suoka is tim first responsible diplomat to make such a public declaration He sailed from England today aboard the Leviathan and expects to confer with President Roosevelt on the Manchurian problem and Pacific relations.] j His statement, follows: By YOcl KE JVI VI SROKA LONDON, M : h 17 (Copyright. 1935, by International News Service* I nm glad to comply with a request by International News Service for a statement setting forth my view's regarding the Pacific problem, j I want to dispel once and for nil I I In* impression prevalent among many 'Americans that Japan is a disturber i of universal peace i Japans action In Manchuria was i to establish peace, not to disturb it. As regards relations between Japan and the United States, I want to emphasize that I cannot see any cause for war, provided we mutually mind our own business. It is I rue that the atmosphere existing in both countries at the present moment is not reassuring. I am certain that this is caused bv a mutual lack of understanding of each other’s aims and difficulties. Injudicious actions and words on \our part hurt the Japanese and tho I feeling now existing In Japan is the j reaction. All those who really desire peace and a new era of friendly co operation in the Pacific should, I believe, use all their efforts to dispel the undercurrent of distrust and fear. I believe, for instance, that a return of tile United Stales scouting fleet to its normal ba e in the Atlantic would nppeni to tlie Japanese people as one of the greatest gestures of good will and peaceful nelghb'filiness that Hie United States could make. It would usher in a new era of relations between the two countries.
