The United Nations Organization (UNO) is an intergovernmental organization established on 24 October 1945 to promote international cooperation. It was founded to replace the League of Nations following World War II and to prevent another conflict. At the time it was founded, the UN had 51 Member States; there are now 193. Most nations are members of the UN and send people to the headquarters to hold meetings and make resolutions about global issues.
