Id. out of 73 (translated by the author). Bilateral negotiations between Japan and the Netherlands and the opinion of THE US delegate Dulles during the peace treaty negotiations were discussed in this case. The Russians declared themselves ready to pay reparations to the central powers when Russia left the war in the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk (which was rejected eight months later by the Bolshevik government). Under the Treaty of Neuilly, Bulgaria paid 2.25 billion francs (90 million pounds) in gold to the Agreement. The nature of post-World War II compensation cases can be categorized by period. First, from the 1950s to the 1980s, some Japanese nationals sued the Japanese government seeking compensation for loss of damages and injuries, injuries and loss of property, which the complainants could have demanded from allied countries had their rights not been nullified by the San Francisco Peace Treaty.  Then, from the 1970s to the 1990s, former Japanese Taiwanese and Korean military employees living in Japan sued the Japanese government for social benefits. There have been agreements between Japan and Taiwan or Korea on social benefits for former military personnel. Those who lived outside their country could not receive social benefits from their own government.  Finally, around 1990, various foreigners began to sue the Japanese government.  In 1991, comfort women demanded compensation and a formal apology.  More recently, foreigners forced to work have been added to private companies as defendants. The ROC, while it could not be a contracting party to the multinational peace agreement, wanted a speedy conclusion of a bilateral peace treaty with Japan, and the United States urged Japan to conclude a peace treaty with the ROC immediately after the end of the Allied occupation.
 On the very day the San Francisco Peace Treaty came into force, the peace treaty between Japan and the ROC was signed.  The treaty exchange note confirmed that “the provisions of this treaty apply to the Republic of China to all territories that are currently or may be under the control of its government.”  However, the ROC has not extended its control over the continent.
