Ambassador Mansfield reiterates that the Japanese-American relationship is the most important in the world, but to improve it Japan needs to lower its trade tariffs and quotas and the United States needs to straighten out its financial problems. He discusses United States attitudes toward Japanese military policy and once again states that the future lies in the Pacific.
