The article discusses the relations of the U.S. with Pacific Islands. The U.S. will become the last remaining administering authorities in the Pacific Islands under the United Nations Trusteeship System. All of the territories, except Nauru, northeastern New Guinea and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, will have achieved self-government or independence within the next years. Anti-colonialism is expected to become a great political force. Although the U.S. has proclaimed its anti-colonial tradition, it is being criticized for its foreign policy.
