The development of the universal international organization of the United Nations in the previous period was not at all easy due to the fact that since its foundation in 1945, the world order changed drastically and experienced several ups and downs. The polymorphic power structure that the United Nations gradually built after the end of the Second World War was reflected in the multiplication of the number of member states, but also in the strengthening of its main bodies, whose diverse competences were adapted to the requirements of the time. After the end of the Cold War, the United Nations began reaffirming the concept of preserving world peace and security, as well as building on the existing institutional system. The aforementioned efforts were a consequence of the democratization of international relations, as well as the increased determination of the international community to devote itself more actively to solving new international political crises. In this sense, the Charter of the United Nations represented the only relevant international legal base on which modern international relations should be built. The interdependence that exists between the development of international law and international relations is, therefore, best manifested through the application of the goals and principles of the Charter, which has remained a key determinant in the regulation of all important international problems and in preserving the universal value of the largest part of the international community.
