The European Council on Tourism and Trade salutes the 70 years anniversary since the United Nations Organization Charter was signed in San Francisco on 26 June 1945, this being a fundamental, seminal document for the political organization of international relations after the tragic experience of the Second World War.

European Tourism and Trade Council President (Professor Dr. Anton Caragea) and European Tourism Academy Director-Dr. Mircea Constantinescu in the center of the ambassadors presents on the venue of 2015 United Nations Day.
“During the 70 years, the relevance of the UN Charter was highlighted by geopolitical changes in international relations. However, the conditions imposed by the dynamics of decolonization, by the Cold War implications and by economic globalization proved the value of this founding document, as it has helped promote human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
The evolution in the number of UN members – from 51 founding members to 193 today – speaks for itself about the topicality and importance of the Charter, which allowed the UN to strengthen its universal vocation and its legitimacy on the three action pillars: international peace and security, development and human rights and its status as the most comprehensive international cooperation organization and the main source of international law,” stated European Council on Tourism and Trade President Office in his statement.
Celebrating 70 years since the signing of the UN Charter provides the European Council on Tourism and Trade the opportunity to reiterate Europe’s commitment – to the goals and values of the world organization and its constant respect for the actions of institutions in the UN system, as the main global cooperation framework between topics of international law and the codification of international law rules.
The UN Charter is not solely the result of multilateral deliberations and negotiations at the Peace Conference in San Francisco in 1945. Its adoption was the result of a long development process, held for most of the war, spurred by the Allies’ political vision of the UN, as they envisaged as a fundamental instrument of postwar order that would take into account the successful experiences and failures of the Society of Nations, the new geostrategic configurations and, especially, the all the values of the Western civilization, values which had so deeply been disturbed by the war.
