The Four Power Treaty was signed by the United States, Great Britain, France, and Japan on December 13, 1921.  It was approved by the Senate on March 24, 1922, with an amended resolution.

As part of the treaty, the four countries agree to respect the Pacific holdings of the other signing parties; to confer with them in case of territorial dispute among the Four; and mutual consultation with each other if their rights in the pacific should be threatened by an outside Power.
