Hi friends, I hope this article will provide you good knowledge about the various Organs of the United Nations Organisation (U.N.O).

            The Second World War proved more destructive than the First World War. Millions of people were killed, wounded and maimed. The material loss could not be estimated. The need for a world organization to save the world from another such war was felt all over the world. As a result, the charter of the United Nations Organisation (U.N.O) was signed at San Francisco in June 1945. The U.N.O officially came into existence on October 24, 1945, with New York as its headquarters. The main objectives of the U.N.O are:
• To maintain international peace and security
• To develop friendly relations among nations
• To settle disputes which may disturb world peace and
• To render economic, social and scientific help to the backward nations.

1. General Assembly
