  • Foreword

    Each new Yearbook of the United Nations marks, in effect, an annual contribution to building up a history memory-bank for the United Nations system. The principal reference work of the Organization, it is intended to provide a year-by-year factual guide to the increasingly complex patterns of activities of the United Nations and the international organizations related to it.

    • Political and security questions

      In 1968, discussions on disarmament centred mainly on the question of preventing the further spread of nuclear weapons.

    • Economic and social questions

      Recent trends in the world economic situation were reviewed by the Economic and Social Council at its mid-1968 session. Discussion was based on the World Economic Survey, 1967, the regional surveys for Europe, for Asia and the Far East, for Latin America and for Africa, and also on a special study of selected development problems in the Middle East.

    • Questions relating to trust and non-self-governing territories and the declaration on granting independence

      Under the International Trusteeship System established by the United Nations Charter, Member States administering Trust Territories are accountable to the United Nations for the discharge of their responsibilities and obligations in the administration of the Territories.

    • Legal questions

      By an Application of 19 June 1962, the Belgian Government sought reparation for the damage claimed to have been caused to Belgian nationals, shareholders in the Canadian company, Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company, Limited, by the conduct of various organs of the Spanish State. In a Judgment of 24 July 1964, the International Court of Justice rejected two of the four preliminary objections raised by Spain and joined the other two to the merits, proceedings on which were then resumed.

    • Administrative and budgetary questions

      In 1968, the General Assembly again reviewed the composition of the United Nations Secretariat and the progress made in recruiting the staff of the Secretariat on as wide a geographical basis as possible. In addition, it discussed the question of ensuring a more equitable balance in the use of working languages in the Secretariat. In this connexion, the General Assembly also examined the question of additions to the working languages of United Nations organs.
