At a meeting held in San Francisco, the United States, in April-June 1945, 50 countries including China, the former Soviet Union, the United States and Britain (Poland was added later) signed the United Nations Charter. On October 24 of the same year, the United Nations was officially founded. The 51 signatory countries of the United Nations Charter became founding members of the United Nations.

According to the stipulations of the United Nations Charter, the United Nations is aimed at "keeping international peace and security", "developing the friendly relations in the international community in line with the principle of respection the right of equality and self-determination of the people", and "promoting international cooperation". The major institutions of the United Nations include General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, Trusteeship Council, International Court of Justice and Secretariat.
