Australia, American State, Part 2.

"Australian Defence Minister Robert Hill made the pledge after meeting his US counterpart Donald Rumsfeld at an Asian security conference in Singapore.

Mr Rumsfeld told the summit the "war on terror" would be a long one and warned against more militant attacks in Asia.

Mr Hill said Australia, a key ally in the "war on terror", recognised the US "cannot do everything itself".

"If we can assist in any way, then we will do it," Mr Hill said, adding that it was up to Washington to decide what to do about the offer."
