United Nations & Member countries

The United Nations was created during the Second World War by the efforts of members of the anti-Hitler coalition. The declared goal: support and strengthening of world peace, security, development, and cooperation between countries. In fact, the UN replaced the League of Nations, which in similar circumstances and with similar goals was formed after the First World War. For a number of reasons and because of the presence or absence of some countries it became ineffective and inconvenient. For example, the USSR joined the League of Nations in 1934 and was expelled in 1939, and it was already impossible to imagine the world order after the Second World War without the Soviet Union.

The UN is an international organization that officially began to function in 1945 and initially included 50 member countries, and now it includes 193 countries. There are also two countries with observer status: the Vatican and Palestine. The official languages ​​of the organization: English, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, and French. The headquarters is located in New York (USA).

There are also unrecognized countries that are not members of the UN, but have proclaimed their independence and are even recognized by some other countries. And there are non-independent countries that have the status of a dependent territory.
