Erik Nitsche: United Nations in Oceania
Artist: Erik Nitsche
During World War II, the nations allied against Germany, Italy and Japan were known as the United Nations. Later, this name was given to a postwar organization dedicated to preserving lasting world peace. In 1945, representatives of the allied nations met in San Francisco to work out a plan for this new international organization to help keep the peace. This plan was described in a document known as the Charter of the United Nations. In June, 1945 Australia and other Oceania countries ... together with nearly fifty other nations ... signed this Charter to become the first UN members. As members, each nation pledges to uphold the purposes of the United Nations -- foremost being the preservation of international peace and security. The United Nations is also dedicated to the development of friendly relations among nations based on equal rights and international cooperation. Since the founding of the United Nations, nearly every country on earth has joined the organization. New members are admitted to the United Nations on recommendation of the Security Council, however each new member must be accepted by a two-thirds vote of the General Assembly. To be considered for membership each country must be a peace-loving state.
