History of United Nations:

After the end of World War I, the League of Nations was formed with a clear intention to have a healthy talk between the nations to discuss their differences calmly. But still, there were some countries like Germany, Italy and Japan who denied the League and chose war to solve their problems. However, the League failed because there was no co-operation between the members of the League of Nations, which finally led to the Second World War.

During World War II, the Allied Powers named themselves as “the United Nations” which meant staying united against the Axis Powers. And soon after the War, these Allied Powers formed a new organization for world peace. On 25th April 1945 in San Francisco the members agreed on naming it as “United Nations”. And on 24th October 1945, United Nations was created and held its first meeting in January 1946. 24th October is celebrated as the “United Nations Day”; since 1947.
