Most young Americans ignorant of U.S. obligation to defend Japan

Tokyo Shimbun printed a Jiji story on the result of a public opinion poll taken in May by the Council on Foreign Relations showing that only 28% of American university students and recent college graduates aged 18 to 26 were aware that the U.S. has a treaty obligation to protect Japan if it is attacked. The corresponding figures for Canada, South Korea, and Turkey were 47%, 34%, and 14%.
