Following the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the drastic changes in Eastern Europe marked the end of the cold war, Japan also means that as the role of the US-Soviet Cold War confrontation forward loss. Japan-US alliance should be ended its life the with the end of the Cold War, but with the passage of time, and constantly reinforced. Japan continued to rely on the United States launched the war on terrorism to "take eggs from chicken," and "borrowed boat to go out from sea", Sentiment in the international community establish a military image; At the same time, in 60 anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, Japanese diplomatic attacking, talking about the reform of the United Nations, to the UN Security Council permanent seat, Japanese these actions can not but arouse strong as its neighbours -- China's concern.
The adoption of Japanese diplomacy at the United Nations to specific historical events recalled the history of post-war Japan-US relations as a case of the sample analysis, Using historical and empirical approach, Systematically discussed in-depth research and political relations between Japan and the United States after World War II, the course of development and Japanese diplomatic and thus summed up the general laws, and the future development of Japan-US relations towards a forward-looking analysis. The article is divided into three main parts.
Part I : For the academic community on the Japan-US diplomatic relations and the status of research on the Japanese UN simple overview, And made choices from this research methods and materials.
Part II :Define the two core conception concerning to this theme: basic axis of Japan-US alliance and Japan’ s certerlism of UN (the United Nations). And according to our country’ s scholar liu shilong’ s definition of the development of the relation of Japan-US, we have selected historical things of three different stages to analyze, in order to clear the relation between basic axis of Japan-US alliance and Japan’ s centralism of UN (the United Nations). Through the analysis we can draw three conclusions: 1、Japanese UN diplomacy seems to demonstrate its independent, but in more time it was proceeded under the framework of the harmony of Japanese with the United States, Japan-US alliance is the Japanese diplomacy’ s perpetual foundation. The extreme egoism of Japanese diplomacy: Japanese UN diplomacy postwar follows one main clue: the opportunism to acquire its own interests and the pragmatism policy on the basis of the realpolitic by relying on the UN’s support. In fact, multilateralism has never taken the dominant position in Japanese diplomacy and its security policy. Japanese attitude to the UN is repugnant and pragmatic, but this is in unanimity with the pursuit of national interests by the smallest price through diplomatic policy. Whether to maintain the basic axis of Japan-US alliance or to strengthen its UN diplomacy, both are served for the goal of Japan to becoming a political great power, to change the appearance of a giant in economy and a dwarfs in politics. The ultimate object of Japan is to become great power in the world in all of economic、political and military sides.
Part III : Through analysis of Japan's appeal to become a great political power, and the limitation of the means to achieve their aspiration, and the process of achieving this aspirations, I want to analyze the trends of the future development of the Japan-US alliance: On one hand, Japanese special historical status and the reality of international environmental determines the limitation of the means to achieve their aspiration .all the possible diplomatic means it can uses are all related to the United States, so Japan can not shake off the influence of the United States to go after its goal independently. This means that the Japan-US alliance will be continued for a long time; On the other hand, the goal of becoming a great political power can not be attained in one step, it will need a long historical process. in this process, we should analyze the dynamics of Japan-US relations, should pay attention to the new trend of Japan-US alliance's change . In the framework of the “Security Treaty Between Japan and the United States of America”,with Japan's constantly advancing on the path to a great political power, Japan's and the United States' respective gravity will arise to quantitative change quietly. This new trend is reflected in this: with the time on and mutual strategy needs, it will broaden the applied scope of the Japan-US alliance, and the trend of globalizing is clearer and clearer. On the other hand, with the game and constant choice between the goal of becoming a political power and the behavior to maintain the Japan-US alliance, Japan’s independent is increasing constantly.
