CENTO at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

A mutual-security organization, originally composed of Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Britain, it was formed, at the urging of the U.S. and Britain, to counter the threat of Soviet expansion into Middle East oil fields. Its internal cohesion was never strong. Iraq withdrew after its anti-Soviet monarchy was overthrown in 1959. That same year the U.S. became an associate member, and its headquarters were moved to Ankara, Turkey. After the fall of M. R. Shah Pahlavi in 1979, Iran withdrew and CENTO was dissolved.
