Post Ww2 Agreements

Even after the Korean War (July 27, 1953), after the French withdrawal from Indochina (the Geneva Accords of July 20, 1954 were rejected by the United States) or after the war in Vietnam, peace agreements concluded – only ceasefire agreements – were not put into effect. In the latter case, after five years of negotiations between the United States, North Vietnam, South Vietnam and the National Liberation Front, an agreement was finally reached on January 28, 1973. Although it had the breadth and scope of a peace treaty, it was simply an executive agreement that came into force on the American side with the signature of Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and not after senate approval. The Soviet Union also experienced rapid growth in production in the immediate post-war period. [120] Japan experienced rapid economic growth and became one of the most powerful economies in the world in the 1980s. [121] China was essentially bankrupt after the end of its civil war. By 1953, economic restoration seemed rather successful, as production had returned to pre-war levels. [122] This growth rate continued to a large extent, although it was interrupted by economic experiences during the catastrophic great leap forward. The main theme of Potsdam was the question of how to deal with Germany. In Yalta, the Soviets had insisted that serious reparations from Germany be made after the war, half of which were to go to the Soviet Union. While Roosevelt had responded to such demands, Truman and his foreign minister, James Byrnes, were determined to mitigate Germany`s treatment by allowing occupying nations to demand reparations only from their own areas of occupation. Mr.

Truman and Mr. Byrnes encouraged this position because they wanted to avoid a repeat of the situation created by the Treaty of Versaille, a situation that Germany had demanded after the First World War. Many experts agreed that the harsh reparations imposed by the Treaty of Versaille had hampered the German economy and fuelled the rise of the Nazis. The Charter of the United Nations was created as a way to save “future generations from the scourge of war.” This is the result of the inability of the League of Nations to resolve the conflicts that led to the Second World War. Now, as early as 1941, the Allies have made a proposal that has created a new international body for peacekeeping in the post-war world. The idea of the United Nations began to be articulated in August 1941, when U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill signed the Atlantic Charter, which proposed a set of principles of international cooperation for the maintenance of peace and security.

This term was first used officially on January 1, 1942, when representatives of 26 allied nations met in Washington D.C and signed the United Nations Declaration, which endorsed the Atlantic Charter and presented the United Allied War Objectives. The United Nations Conference on the International Organization, convened in San Francisco on 25 April 1945, met with 50 represented nations. Three months later, when Germany visited, the final Charter of the United Nations was unanimously adopted by delegates. It was signed on June 26; The Charter, which included a preamble and 19 chapters, divided into 111 articles, called on the United Nations to maintain international peace and security, promote social progress and improve living standards, strengthen international law and promote the extension of human rights.
