International peace and security

The United Nations continued in 1989 to safeguard international peace and security. The General Assembly, noting that conflicts and hostilities were giving way to negotiations and cooperation, stressed the need to enhance the effectiveness of the Security Council in maintaining international peace and security as well as its preventive role, authority and enforcement capacity (resolution 44/126). The Assembly also reaffirmed its support for the validity and relevance of the Charter of the United Nations and encouraged Member States to implement and strengthen the principles of international peace, security and international co-operation (44/21).
