This article reports on the activities of the Australia-New Zealand-United States (ANZUS) Pacific Security Pact recent as of August 1954. The ANZUS Council held its second meeting in Washington D.C. on September 9 to 10, 1953. It was an opportunity for foreign ministers from the member countries to tackle security issues shaping the Pacific Rim. Prior to the opening of the meeting, speculations were abound in the press about the possibility of providing some form of associative membership to other countries and international organizations. This came after London publicly expressed its disappointment with its exclusion from the organization. The ministers reinforced the defensive nature of the ANZUS alliance and expressed determination to play their full part in the maintenance of peace and security in the Pacific.
