Japan declared her principal policy, called three principles of foreign policy, after entering into the United Nations in 1956. These were United Nations Centralism, Cooperation with the Free World and Maintenance of the Position of Asian Countries.
Contradictions of these three principles have been pointed out from time to time, and the United Nations centralism concept has almost been forgotten. Yet, in spite of the changes which have occurred in the United Nations since Japan's entry, Japan has rather effectively adhered to these principles in her actual diplomacy.
There are, of course, several resulting questions but it might be worthwhile to consider Japan's United Nations Centeralism diplomacy as one of the fundamental attitudes of diplomacy as a small country.
