Embassy of Sweden in Czechia

24. on October 1945, the UN Charter came into force, a document of the organization, in which countries around the world committed to comply with the rules of international law. As an international treaty, the Charter codifies the basic principles of international relations – from sovereignty and equality between states to the prohibition of the use of force in resolving international disputes.
The UN Charter is clear: any annexation of a territory from one state to another by threat or violence is a violation of the UN Charter and international law.
💡 Let’s remember the preamble of the UN Charter today:
“WE, THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED NATIONS, DETERMINED to protect future generations from the scourge of war that twice in our lifetime has brought humanity unspeakable sorrow, determined to re-declare our faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and value of human persons carry, in equal rights of men and women and nations great and small, determined to create proportions, under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other streams of international law are preserved, and determined to promote social progress and improve the standard of living in greater liberty, AND TO DO SO to cultivate tolerance and mutual living t in peace as good neighbours, unite their forces to maintain international peace and security, adopt policies and methods to ensure that the armed forces are not used otherwise than in the common good, and use international machinery to promote the economic and social upliftment of all nations,
WE DECIDED TO JOIN OUR EFFORTS TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS. Therefore, our governments, through their representatives, who assembled in San Francisco and submitted their powers, seen in good and due form, agreed upon this Charter of the United Nations and hereby establish an international invitation well the united nations. “
