Charter of the United Nations 

From the series: 

Treaties, Agreements, and Other International Acts for Which the United States is the Depositary Government, 1943 – 1984

On June 26, 1945, in San Francisco, the United Nations Charter was established. It was created at the end of World War II in an attempt to maintain international peace and security and to achieve cooperation among nations on economic, social and humanitarian problem. The required number of nations ratified the charter on October 24, 1945, which is now celebrated as United Nations Day.
