London Naval Conference, 1935-1936
   The London Naval Conference was a conference held in London, England, between the United States, Great Britain, and Japan that met between December 1935 and March 1936 to consider Japanese protests against the earlier Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 that limited the building of battleships by each nation to a ratio of 5:5:3, respectively. When the Japanese demand for parity was rejected, they withdrew, and Great Britain and the United States cemented an agreement to exchange information on naval construction programs and limit the building of certain warships in peacetime.
