On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima City was in a coma after being hit by an atomic bomb by the United States (US), followed by Nagasaki City who suffered a similar fate three days ago. Japan realized that it was on the verge of defeat in World War II in the face of the Allies.
Efforts to save self-esteem immediately carried out, Japan of course never lose face. Three Indonesian figures who were considered the most influential at the time were also called: Ir. Sukarno, Mohammad Hatta, and Radjiman Wediodiningrat.
The Indonesian Independence Preparatory Committee (PPKI) was formed. Dai Nippon wanted to be sure to fully support the Indonesian people’s desire for independence. In fact, as if, independence was a gift from Japan.
As a reinforcement of this promise, Japan flew Sukarno, Hatta and Radjiman to Dalat, Vietnam, on August 12, 1945, to discuss plans for the surrender of independence with their highest military leader in the Southeast Asian region, Marshal Hisaichi Terauchi.
Two days after the meeting, the Japanese actually lost the war and surrendered to the Allies. Finally Indonesian independence was proclaimed August 17, 1945, or sooner without having to wait for surrender from Japan.
