In 1954 after the Geneva Conference on Indo-China, the Government stated that "New Zealand would regard any violation of the Geneva Agreements as a threat to the security of South-East Asia and a danger to international peace and security." In the Manila Treaty New Zealand also recognised that aggression in Indo-China would endanger our own peace and safety.
