During WWII Palau was
heavily damaged. In 1947, after the war, Palau was placed under a Trust Territory of the
Islands by the United Nations. This trusteeship left Palau under US authority. In
1994 the trusteeship ended &
Palau became an independent republic. An agreement has been
made between Palau & the U.S which allows the U.S. to
dock military vessels in the islands
for 50 years in exchange for defence & $517 million in aid over 15 years.
