Episode 46: The Basics of San Francisco Peace Treaty
Sep 14, 2020 The San Francisco Peace Treaty (SFPT) was an agreement, made by 48 nations, that came into effect on April 28, 1952. This treaty was a bilateral decision that inevitably helped secure the enduring relationship between the United States and Japan. The treaty included the termination of the Imperial Japanese Empire, Allied occupation in Japan, and detailed territorial as well as postwar mandates Japan had to follow in order to conclude the nation’s gloomy past. It was a way to create a form of international rules not through conflict and terror, but through peaceful dispute and deliberations.
