  • Foreword

    Those who cannot learn from history are likely not only to misunderstand the present but also, therefore, to hinder, if not to endanger, the future. This is as valid for the development of the multilateral United Nations system of organized international co-operation to promote peace and economic and social progress in larger freedom as it is for other human endeavours.

    • Political and security questions

      The disarmament discussion, during 1970, dealt with several collateral measures as well as the question of general and complete disarmament. Both the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament and the General Assembly gave particular attention to the need to prevent an arms race on the sea-bed. Continued concern was also expressed regarding the problems of chemical and biological weapons and a comprehensive ban on nuclear weapon testing.

    • Economic and social questions

      On 24 October 1970, celebrating the twentyfifth anniversary of the United Nations, the General Assembly proclaimed the Second United Nations Development Decade, starting from 1 January 1971, and adopted an International Development Strategy for the Decade. The Strategy was the result of two years of work by a Preparatory Committee set up by the General Assembly in 1968 and assisted by the Economic and Social Council’s Committee for Development Planning and other United Nations bodies.

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

      Under the International Trusteeship System established by the Charter of the United Nations, 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

      On 5 February 1970, the International Court of Justice delivered Judgment in the second phase of the case involving the Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company, Limited.

    • Administrative and budgetary questions

      In 1970, the General Assembly reviewed the composition of the Secretariat in terms of the application of new linguistic standards for staff on recruitment, in terms of its geographical distribution and in terms of the representation of women in the Secretariat, and recommended new guidelines for the recruitment of staff.
