United States-Japanese Security Treaty, 1951

   Agreed upon in San Francisco on 8 September 1951 and ratified by the U.S. Senate on 20 March 1952, the United States-Japanese Security Treaty granted the United States the right to station military forces on or around Japan’s islands to maintain peace and security in the Far East. Although the treaty guaranteed U.S. aid if Japan were attacked by a third party, it also provided for assistance to suppress internal disturbances if requested by the Japanese government. Japan was prohibited from granting similar rights to other powers without the consent of the United States.
