Today marks United Nations Day, the anniversary of the entry into force of the United Nations Charter on today’s date in 1945.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, “More people and governments understand that multilateralism is the only path in our interdependent and globalizing world,…Global problems demand global solutions – and going it alone is not a viable option.”

So Happy Birthday, UN. Party on.
