Anzus Treaty

Anzus Treaty On 4 August 1951, Australia, New Zealand, and the US created a mutual security pact as an anti-Communist measure during the cold war. Australia and New Zealand contributed combat troops to the Vietnam War. New Zealand’s refusal to let US ships carrying nuclear weapons use its harbors in 1985 led both nations to abrogate their mutual defense responsibilities in 1986.
