Robert Ayson, Director of the Centre for Strategic Studies: New Zealand, and David Capie, Senior Lecturer at the School of History, Philosophy, Political Science and International Relations, both at the Victoria University of Wellington, explain “that while New Zealand has not returned to a formal alliance status in an ANZUS context, it is now very clearly a de facto ally of the United States.”
