3. The Pursuit of Peace9

One of the first questions that often arises in any discussion of international affairs goes something like this: what can the United Nations do to work toward the peaceful settlement of international differences?

There are a number of ways in which the United Nations can contribute to better understanding in the world and to world peace, and I would list in particular these three areas:

First, the United Nations has already proved that it can be very useful in settling minor disputes between nations, disputes which in years past might have resulted in armed conflict.

Second, the United Nations is doing work in some fields that very few people know about but in which it is making a longrange contribution to better understanding, not only among free nations and neutral nations, but even between the free world and the Communist world. A good example of the kind of work I am referring to is the activity of the World Health Organization, in which people from all over the world work together for a cause about which there can be no disagreement. This kind of project can only be helpful to the cause of peace.
