What is United nations day?

The foundation of the ‘League of Nations‘ was laid in the Treaty of Versailles, which was one of the treaties to formally end the World War-I. The treaty was signed on June 28, 1919, in Versailles, France. The purpose of the league was to encourage disarmament, stop the outbreak of war and negotiate international disputes to encourage diplomatic measures and encourage the quality of life around the world. However, after ‘World War II’ the ‘League of Nations’ understood that we need to work in a different form.

The idea of the United Nations developed in the last years of World War II, especially during the United Nations Conference in San Francisco, which was started on 25 April 1945. The United Nations was officially created on October 24 of that year when United Nations Charter was ratified.
