The United Kingdom was not the only nation to have such an agreement with the United States. During the war, the United States entered into lease agreements with more than 30 countries and spent about $50 billion in aid. Although British Prime Minister Winston Churchill later called the initiative “the most dishonest act” one nation had ever done for another, Roosevelt`s main motivation was not selflessness or selfless generosity. Instead, Lend-Lease was to serve America`s interest in defeating Nazi Germany without entering the war until the American military and public opinion were ready to fight. At a time when the majority of Americans opposed direct participation in the war, Lend-Lease represented an important contribution of the United States to the fight against Nazi Germany. Moreover, the joint action signed in Article VII of the joint action signed by the United States and the recipient countries laid the groundwork for the creation of a new international economic order in the post-war world. (IV) A global society without segregation and discrimination, the source of hatred and division, is a fundamental objective of the United Nations. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on 10 December 1948 by the United Nations General Assembly, is the result of the experience of the Second World War. With the end of this war and the creation of the United Nations, the international community has never again promised to allow atrocities like the one in this conflict. Heads of state and government around the world have decided to supplement the UN Charter with a roadmap to guarantee the rights of everyone everywhere. The document they examined, which would later become the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, was taken up at the first session of the General Assembly in 1946. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (USSR) is therefore a document that acts as a global roadmap for freedom and equality – and protects the rights of everyone everywhere. It was the first time that countries have agreed on freedoms and rights that deserve universal protection, so that every human being can live his or her life freely, on an equal footing and with dignity.
Work on the UDHR began in 1946 with an editorial board made up of representatives from a large number of countries, including the United States, Lebanon and China. The drafting committee was then expanded to include representatives from Australia, Chile, France, the Soviet Union and the United Kingdom, so that the document was able to benefit from the contributions of states from all regions and their different religious, political and cultural contexts. The first draft declaration was proposed in September 1948, with the participation of more than 50 Member States. By its resolution 217 A (III) of 10 December 1948, the General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with eight nations abstaining but sending none. The entire text of the UDHR was drafted in less than two years. At a time when the world was divided into Eastern and Western blocs, finding common ground on what was to be the essence of the document proved to be a daunting task. The Charter of the United Nations was created as a way to save “future generations from the scourge of war.”
