The Founding of the United Nations

About the founding of the United Nations and the security council.


Forty-six nations sent 300 delegates to San Francisco to form a world body that would "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war." After 9 weeks of intensive work, the Charter of the United Nations was completed on June 25, 1945. The UN was housed in New York, with a General Assembly that "recommends" and a Security Council (grown from 9 original members to 27 today) that gives the big powers permanent seats and a veto.
