Example text

Peace does not thrive on legal documents alone, well drafted or not. It does not receive sustenance from agreed substance alone. The type of peace envisaged by the United Nations Charter calls for an abundance of political will on the part of Member States. Law is meaningless in a setting in which there is absence of that will. It is this that dictates the degree of progress that we make in the pursuit of the lofty aims and purposes of our Charter. These facts must be borne in mind at all times.

They were opposed to the African view insisting that the Charter could not have encouraged the use of any form of force in the liquidation of colonialism. The Charter, they said, stressed peaceful resolution of issues. Yet they did not condemn the use of force to suppress subject peoples in the name of "law and order". The most important principle, therefore, was that of self-determination of peoples (Principle 6). For the African nations, it was a fundamental one without which none of the other principles could exist.

These facts must be borne in mind at all times. It would appear anachronistic to speak of "the maintenance of peace" in an age in which peace has not yet been attained; an age in which quietude provides the illusion of an oasis in a desert of acrimony and distrust. History is teaching us, as I believe it did the founders of this Organization, that peace is not merely the absence of war. To be meaningful it must represent the condition under which war is not only undesirable but impossible. It must symbolize the condition under which there is universal respect for fundamental human rights, the dignity and worth of the human person, the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small; conditions under which there is full and unreserved respect for the rule of law, conditions which permit of social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom.
