|Notes:||The Charter of the United Nations is the foundational treaty of the international organization called the United Nations. It was signed at the w:San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in San Francisco, United States, on 26 June 1945. — Excerpted from Charter of the United Nations on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.|
The origin of the Charter of the United Nations can be traced back to the Atlantic Charter, signed on 14 August 1941, by which Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, and Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, made known “certain common principles in the national policies of their respective countries on which they base their hopes for a better future for the world”. This document, in its eighth paragraph, incidentally referred to the future “establishment of a wider and permanent system of general security”.
