On October 24

On this day in ...
... 1970, the U.N. General Assembly adopted Resolution 2625 (XXV), entitled the "Declaration on Principles of International Law Concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations." Paragraph 1 began:
'The principle that States shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations.'
The declaration then proceeded to detail means by which states ought to respect the prohibition on threat or use of force, set forth tersely in Article 2(4) of the U.N. Charter.
