Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen.

Tonight we celebrate the United Nations, but perhaps only a few know why
we do so, why countries do so. Tonight, we are actually commemorating the
founding of the United Nations. We are celebrating the coming into effect of the
United Nations Charter . With the ratification of the United Nations Charter, the
United Nations officially came into being. The United Nations Charter which was

into conflict. The US and the United Kingdom wanted to control the markets in Asia.
But there was Japan who would not allow that. So the First World countries aimed
their guns against each other. And the Philippines was caught in that war, a war
which was not ours to fight. A war which gave the United States unlimited access to
the Philippine resources.
Those who actually won the Second World War, actually won the fight for the
market in Asia and the World. Now, my question is, who among the UN membercountries control the world market? You bet it, the United States. And now at
present, while we celebrate the United Nations Day, my question would be, has the
creation of the United Nations prevented more wars? Has it promoted amity among
