Chapter Summary

The word State is central in the United Nations Charter, for the Charter opens the Organization to States. A neighbouring State which lays claim to the entire territory of the putative new State may present an impediment to the consolidation of statehood. In a number of situations, member States pursued such total claims to the territory of neighbouring entities by seeking to block admission of the entities as member States. Viet Nam has been the only instance of a putative divided State in which unification was achieved by force. The cases of Germany, Korea, and China are discussed in this chapter. After the package deal of 1955-6, admission of States to the UN has scarcely been an arena for dispute. Contested positions were rare, and, other than the cases of the divided States, most of what disputes did arise over admission between the mid-1950s and the early 1990s were short-lived.
