Summary

The Charter of the United Nations is, therefore, both a milestone and a true act of faith that still today fills us with hope on the best of humanity and brings us together to ensure the common wellbeing of present and future generations.

Description

The Charter of the United Nations, which contains the tenets and pillars of modern day international law, is not only the first international legally-binding agreement, of a multilateral nature, that expressly and definitely forbade war as an instrument of foreign policy, but also the code of conduct that has ruled international relations between States for the past 75 years, on the basis of respect for the principle of sovereign equality, self determination and non-interference in the internal affairs of States, as well as for the territorial integrity and political independence of any nation.

The Charter of the United Nations is, therefore, both a milestone and a true act of faith that still today fills us with hope on the best of humanity and brings us together to ensure the common wellbeing of present and future generations. Its purposes and principles are indispensable in preserving and promoting peace and security, the rule of law, economic development and social progress, and all human rights for all.
