Chapter Summary

Germany and later Japan were the reason for the foundation of the United Nations. It was founded on grounds of the experiences of World War II, provoked by Germany, and founded by those 50 states that had declared war on Germany. The relationship between Germany and the United Nations developed in three phases to its present state: 1. Period I: 1945-1949, 2. Period II: 1949-1973, 3. Period III: 1973-1990. In parallel, Germany supported as a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member the new NATO policy which it had pursued under the leadership of the USA since the Gulf War (1990/91). This new NATO strategy (1991) expressed a political will to act more independently, and finally even without any mandate of the UN Security Council.
