But this Alliance Soon Turned into a Source of Concern for the United States because it Legally Obligates Britain to Stand by Japan in a War that Became a Potential between Japan and the United States, and with the increase in American Concerns about Japan's Economic Control over the Far East, it Sought to Urge Britain to Cancel the Alliance, from During a Conference to Limit Naval Armament and Discuss Pacific Affairs, the Alliance was Actually Canceled and Replaced by the Four Powers Agreement Signed in Washington on December 13, 1921, between Britain, Japan, France and the United States that opens a New Stage for the Map of Balances in the Far East.
