MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russia hopes that the U.N. will remain the key peace guarantor, the Foreign Ministry reported on the occasion of United Nations Day.
The U.N. Charter came into effect on October 24, 1945. In 1949 the United Nations Organisation Headquarters were built in New York City.
The United Nations “was created to rid the future generations of the hardships of war. Its activity is being regulated by the Charter, which remains the unique international document on the basics of peaceful coexistence of equal states. It also includes an effective mechanism to prevent an aggression,” the ministry said.
The goals and principles of the Charter “guarantee peace and progress and create necessary prerequisites for equal and indivisible security”, the ministry said.
“Over years the U.N. functions successfully by adapting to the changing world realities. Amidst the formation of a polycentric system of international relations and the growing role of diplomacy the U.N. authority is in demand more than ever,” the ministry said.
