Your Excellency, I am aware of my responsibilities.
If you will give me a copy of the letter, I will have the foreign minister prepare a reply.
You carry a very heavy burden, Prime Minister. You carry the hopes and dreams of every Japanese alive today and those of our honored ancestors. You literally carry Japan upon your back.
Ignore it. No answer is necessary, Your Excellency. The president does not know his place.
That, Your Excellency, is precisely the problem. As long as we are buying Russian oil, we are at their mercy. Japan must have its own resources.
Our hour has come, ... We are a small island nation, placed by the gods beside a growing Chinese giant. We must have oil.
