The two nations felt threatened by the possibility of a resurgent Japan and the spread of communism to their North. This added to their sense of vulnerability. The United States was initially reluctant, offering instead an informal guarantee of protection.
But the need to strengthen the West against communism grew with the Korean War and a communist victory in the Chinese Civil War. The treaty allayed antipodean fears that such a peace would allow Japan to threaten them again.
The treaty bound the signatories to recognise that an armed attack in the Pacific area on any of them would endanger the peace and safety of the others. It stated 'The Parties will consult together whenever in the opinion of any of them the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened in the Pacific'.
The three nations also pledged to maintain and develop individual and collective capabilities to resist attack. Later New Zealand sent transport aircraft, maritime patrol aircraft and frigates to the Persian Gulf, as well as a very small number of soldiers, SAS soldiers, medical and assorted and peace-keeping forces in Afghanistan—and despite Prime Minister Helen Clark being openly critical of American justifications for the Iraq war, New Zealand did send engineer troops to Iraq following the invasion.
Australian reservations about the MX missile[ edit ] See also: American test ranges in the Pacific were insufficient for testing the new long-range missiles and the United States military wished to use the Tasman Sea as a target area.
Hawke had been pressured into doing so by the left-wing faction of the Labor Party, which opposed the proposed MX missile test in the Tasman Sea. It also did not support its New Zealand counterpart's ban on nuclear-armed and nuclear-powered ships.
However, it still continued to maintain bilateral military ties and continued to share intelligence information with New Zealand. France, a naval power and a declared nuclear power, had been conducting nuclear tests on South Pacific Islands.
Reasons given were the dangers of nuclear weaponscontinued French nuclear testing in the South Pacificand opposition to US President Ronald Reagan 's policy of aggressively confronting the Soviet Union.
Given that the United States Navy had a policy of deliberate ambiguity during the Cold War and refused to confirm or deny the presence of nuclear weapons aboard its warships and support ships, these laws essentially refused access to New Zealand ports for all United States Navy vessels.
In Februarya port-visit request by the United States for the guided-missile destroyer USS Buchanan was refused by New Zealand, as the Buchanan was capable of launching nuclear depth bombs.
As this occurred after the government unofficially invited the United States to send a ship, the refusal of access was interpreted by the United States as a deliberate slight. According to opinion polls taken before the election, only 30 per cent of New Zealanders supported visits by US warships with a clear majority of 58 per cent opposed, and over 66 percent of the population lived in locally declared nuclear-free zones.
United States suspends obligations to New Zealand[ edit ] See also: This law effectively made the entire country a nuclear-free zone. Shultz maintained that the ANZUS structure was still in place, should NZ decide in the future to reverse its anti-nuclear policy and return to a fully operational defence relationship with the US.
The failure of Western leaders to condemn this violation of a friendly nation's sovereignty caused a great deal of change in New Zealand's foreign and defence policy,  and strengthened domestic opposition to the military application of nuclear technology in any form.
New Zealand distanced itself from its traditional ally, the United States, and built relationships with small South Pacific nations, while retaining its good relations with Australia, and, to a lesser extent, the United Kingdom.
The anti-nuclear policy has been a part of New Zealand political culture for years now. However, that has not stopped United States politicians from trying to change the policy. Bush on September 10th Howard was in Washington during the September 11 attacks.
Australia and New Zealand both provided military units, including special forces and naval ships, in support of the US-led " Operation Enduring Freedom " for support for anti- Taliban forces in response to the September 11, terrorist attacks.
New Zealand committed troops. East Timor[ edit ] Between andthe armed forces of Australia and New Zealand deployed together in a large scale operation in East Timorto prevent pro-Indonesian militia from overturning a vote for independence on the island.
The operation was taken over by the United Nations. Taiwan[ edit ] One topic that became prominent in the s was the implications in the case of a hypothetical attack by the People's Republic of China against Taiwanwho would likely receive American support.
While Australia has strong cultural and economic ties with the United States, it also has an increasingly important trade relationship with China.
In AugustForeign Minister Alexander Downer implied in Beijing that the treaty would likely not apply to that situation, but he was quickly corrected by Prime Minister John Howard.
In Marchafter an official of the People's Republic of China stated that it may be necessary for Australia to reassess the treaty and after China passed an Anti-Secession Law regarding Taiwan, Downer stated that in case of Chinese aggression on Taiwan, the treaty would come into force, but that the treaty would require only consultations with the United States and not necessarily commit Australia to war.
The first bilateral meeting was held in Canberra in At the second meeting, in San Francisco inthe United States announced that it was suspending its treaty security obligations to New Zealand pending the restoration of port access. The alliance engenders some political controversy in Australia.
Particularly after Australian involvement in the Iraq warsome quarters of Australian society have called for a re-evaluation of the relationship between the two nations. Nonetheless the alliance enjoyed broad support during the Cold War  and continues to enjoy broad support in Australia.
He also praised New Zealand's involvement in Afghanistan and reconstruction in Iraq. These nations already have a FTA called the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership and the United States will be looking to become involved in the "vitally important emerging Asia-Pacific region" A number of US organisations support the negotiations including, but not limited to: The signing of the declaration ended the ANZUS dispute of the past 25 years, and it was later revealed the US and New Zealand had resumed military co-operation in eight areas in Political impact of the Treaty of Versailles How did right wing groups feel?

On 28 June , the Treaty of Versailles was signed with Germany. The Germans had not been allowed to send any delegates, and had to accept whatever was decided. The Treaty had five main points. The treaty includes no provisions for the economic rehabilitation of Europe – nothing to make the defeated central empires into good neighbours, nothing to stabilise the new states of Europe, nothing to reclaim Russia; nor does it promote a compact of economic solidarity among the allies themselves; no arrangement was reached at Paris for .
