Article III — Mutual Defence
- In the event that either country (the Great Empire of Japan or the Empire of Greater Britannia) should be attacked by another Asian power, the other will immediately declare war on the aggressor under this agreement of mutual defence.
- However, if either country is the aggressor in a war, the other will not be obligated to participate in said conflict.
Article IV — Violation and amendment
- Should either nation violate any agreement in this treaty, it shall be voided and neither nation will be any longer obligated to abide by the agreements as set above.
- Should either nation (or both) wish to amend this treaty in any way, the amendment may proceed pending mutual agreement on both sides.
