"The war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan's advantage" is one of my favorite pieces of understatement.

"It being far from our thought either to infringe upon the sovereignty of other nations or to embark upon territorial aggrandizement", on the other hand, is just absurd chutzpah.

Every empire from Rome to the US has said the same thing.

I don't think it bothered the Romans at all to be seen as a territorial expansionist empire.
