How was the United Nations set up?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How was the United Nations set up?       
How was the United Nations set up? During World War II the Allied nations sometimes referred to themselves as the 'United Nations'. In 1942 they agreed that they would not make any separate peace agreements with Germany.
Twenty-seven countries signed this first agreement and in 1945, after the war, the United Nations formally came into existence with an initial membership of 50 countries.

The United Nations is led by a powerful Security Council, which can intervene in international disputes that might lead to conflict. Today the United Nations is also involved in many economic and aid programmes around the world.
The Potsdam Conference in 1945 laid the ground for the foundation of the United Nations to prevent future conflict, and also set out procedures for the prosecution of Nazi war criminals. Almost all of the world's countries have now joined the United Nations.

Early in 1945, the Allied leaders met in Yalta in the Crimea to decide on the post-war shape of the world. Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin decided on how Germany was to be split up once the war was won.
