HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 cc974-5
77. Mr. AMMON

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to a report in the Press of a Japanese offensive against the Far Eastern Republic, 150 miles north of Vladivostok; and whether, seeing that such action is not in conformity with the promise made by the Japanese at the Washington Conference to withdraw their troops, what protest His Majesty's Government intends making against such action?


My hon. Friend has seen reports in the Press that as the results of the invasion of the Japanese zone, a collision has occurred between the troops of the Far Eastern Republic and the Japanese garrison in Eastern Siberia. His Majesty's Government do not propose to take any action in the matter.
