Japan Leaves League of Nations
The League of Nations received a report from its Commission of inquiry convened under the Earl of Lytton. The Commission found that Japanese actions could not be justified as an act of self-defense. Furthermore, the report stated that the creation of Manchukuo did not result from a "genuine and spontaneous independence movement." The League adopted the American policy of non-recognition of any conquest. The result: the Japanese announced that they were withdrawing from the League.
