In 1945, the United Nations (UN), an international organization of countries, was founded. The UN did many things to help maintain world peace after WWII. It helped to develop good relations between countries and helped to solve global problems. The UN has proved to be a success, and I feel it will continue to be successful.
The first successful peacekeeping mission of the UN was in 1956, the Suez Canal Crisis. The Suez Canal crisis was when France, Israel, and England attacked Egypt. The UN acted as a buffer between the opposing sides. The first time a world organization took part in a fighting war was when the UN intervened in the Korean War in the 1950's. The UN forced the communists of North Korea to withdraw from South Korea. The UN aided Korea by sending troops and supplies to help. On July 27, 1953, North Korea and the UN signed a cease-fire agreement and the communist troops were expelled. .
