The History of the Federated States of Micronesia
Micronesia's Federated States are situated on the Caroline Islands in the West Pacific. In the history of the Federated States of Micronesia, there have been settlements by the Micronesians, colonisation by Spain, Germany and Japan, the United Nations trust under the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands managed by the United States and the progressive process of autonomy, which began with the adoption of a supreme constitutional charter in 1979.
Many of the German properties in the Pacific were taken over by Japan during World War I, which was on the side of the First World War allies and was involved in the First World War's Asia and Pacific theater. during World War II, the Yap was one of the Yap' isles circumvented in the American "island hopping" policy, although it was bombarded on a regular basis by US vessels and planes, and Yap bomber planes caused some damages in exchange.
In 1947, the United Nations founded the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (TTPI). The TTPI was formed by Pohnpei (then Kusaie included), Truk, Yap, Palau, the Marshall Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands. United States agreed to the trustee position, the only trustee of the United Nations known as the Security Trusteeship, whose final decision was to be taken by the UN Security Council.
" Four of the Trusts Territory Districates on May 10, 1979 signed the Constitution of the Federated States of Micronesia. Neighbouring trustee counties of Palau, the Marshall Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands have decided not to take part. Honourable Tosiwo Nakayama, former President of the Congress of Micronesia, became the first President of the FSM and constituted his cabinet.
FSM and the United States concluded a Compact of Free Association, which came into effect on November 3, 1986 and marked the rise of Micronesia from trust to autonomy. The trust of the Icelandic territories ended with United Nations Security Council Resolution 683, which was adopted on 22 December 1990. Background: Micronesia.
