Franco-Japanese Military Cooperation Agreement

29 Jul 1941

ww2dbaseTaking into consideration the present international situation, And recognizing as the result, that there exist reasons for Japan to consider that, in case the security of French Indo-China should be threatened, general tranquility in East Asia and her own security would be exposed to danger,

And renewing at this opportunity the promise made by Japan, on the one hand, to respect the rights and interests of France in East Asia, especially the territorial integrity of French Indo-China and the French sovereignty over the whole of the Union of French Indo-China; and the promise made by France, on the other hand, not to conclude with any third Power or Powers any agreement or understanding regarding Indo-China envisaging political, economic or military co-operation which is directly or indirectly aimed against Japan,

Have agreed upon the following provisions:

(1) The two Governments mutually promise military co-operation for joint defense of French Indo-China.

(2) Measures to be taken for such co-operation shall be the object of special arrangements.

(3) The above stipulations shall be valid only so long as the situation which has motivated their adoption exists. ww2dbase

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
