Their actions were known as 'The Initiative of Five'. The Non-Aligned Movement as an organization was founded on the Brijuni islands in Yugoslavia inand was formalized by signing the Declaration of Brijuni on 19 July
Kuril Landing Operation August 18, — September 1, Though the battle extended beyond the borders traditionally known as Manchuria — that is, the traditional lands of the Manchus — the coordinated and integrated invasions of Japan's northern territories has also been called the Battle of Manchuria.
The Neutrality Pact freed up forces from the border incidents and enabled the Soviets to concentrate on their war with Germanyand the Japanese to concentrate on their southern expansion into Asia and the Pacific Ocean. With success at Stalingradand the eventual defeat of Germany becoming increasingly certain, the Soviet attitude to Japan changed, both publicly, with Stalin making speeches denouncing Japan, and "privately", with the Soviets building up forces and supplies in the Far East.
Stalin faced a dilemma — he wanted to avoid a two-front war at almost any cost yet the Soviet leader also wanted to extract gains in the Far East as well as Europe. The only way Stalin could make Far Eastern gains without a two-front war would be for Germany to capitulate before Japan.
Due to the Soviet—Japanese Neutrality Pactthe Soviets made it policy to intern Allied aircrews who landed in Soviet territory following operations against Japan, although airmen held in the Soviet Union under such circumstances were usually allowed to "escape" after some period of time.
By early it had become apparent to the Japanese that the Soviets were preparing to invade Manchuria, though they were unlikely to attack prior to Germany's defeat. In addition to their problems in the Pacific, the Japanese realised they needed to determine when and where a Soviet invasion would occur.
At the Yalta Conference Februaryamongst other things, Stalin secured from Roosevelt the promise of Stalin's Far Eastern territorial desires, in return agreeing to enter the Pacific War within two or three months of the defeat of Germany.
By the middle of Marchthings were not going well in the Pacific for the Japanese, and they withdrew their elite troops from Manchuria to support actions in the Pacific. Meanwhile, the Soviets continued their Far Eastern buildup.
The Soviets had decided that they did not wish to renew the Neutrality Pact. The terms of the Neutrality Pact required that 12 months before its expiry, the Soviets must advise the Japanese of this, so on 5 April they informed the Japanese that they did not wish to renew the treaty.
The situation continued to deteriorate for the Japanese, and they were now the only Axis power left in the war.
They were keen to remain at peace with the Soviets and extend the Neutrality Pact,  and they were also keen to achieve an end to the war. Since Yalta they had repeatedly approached, or tried to approach, the Soviets in order to extend the Neutrality Pact, and to enlist the Soviets in negotiating peace with the Allies.
The Soviets did nothing to discourage these Japanese hopes, and drew the process out as long as possible whilst continuing to prepare their invasion forces. Stalin expressed interest, and the Japanese awaited the Soviet response.
The Soviets continued to avoid providing a response. The Potsdam Conference was held from 16 July to 2 August On 24 July the Soviet Union recalled all embassy staff and families from Japan. Truman and Chiang Kai-shek the Soviet Union was not officially at war with Japan demanded the unconditional surrender of Japan.
The Japanese continued to wait for the Soviet response, and avoided responding to the declaration.
They did not have any real idea, and no confirming evidence, as to when or where any invasion would occur. Combatant forces[ edit ] See Soviet invasion of Manchuria Combatant forces for the tactical details of the combatant forces and of the invasion.
Soviets[ edit ] The Far East Command,  under Marshal of the Soviet Union Aleksandr Vasilevskyhad a plan for the conquest of Manchuria that was simple but huge in scale,  calling for a massive pincer movement over all of Manchuria.
This pincer movement was to be performed by the Transbaikal Front from the west and by the 1st Far East Front from the east; the 2nd Far East Front was to attack the center of the pocket from the north.
