On January 16, 1920, the League of Nations held its first council meeting in Paris.
The League of Nations, referred to as the League of Nations, is an international organization formed after the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. Founded on January 10, 1920, dissolved in April 1946. It was at its peak from September 28, 1934 to February 23, 1935, and had 58 member states.
Its purpose is to reduce the number of weapons, to quell international disputes, to improve the living standards of the people, and to promote international cooperation and international trade. In its 26 years of existence, the League of Nations has assisted in mediating certain international disputes and dealing with certain international issues. However, the League of Nations lacks military force, so it depends on big country aid, especially when it is sanctioning certain countries. However, the League of Nations lacks the coercive power to implement the resolution and fails to play its due role. Its international sanctions also affect the members of the League of Nations who also impose sanctions.
Its design is still not perfect. For example, it has stipulated a comprehensive reduction of armaments but it has not been implemented. Before taking action against the aggressor, it must be voted by the board of directors. The United States did not join the League of Nations, which even caused the League of Nations to lose its firm and stable support. Therefore, the League of Nations could not stop international disputes, fascist aggression and the outbreak of the Second World War.
In 1945, after the end of World War II, the League of Nations was replaced by the United Nations. The United Nations became the largest sovereign state organization in the world, and the archives of the League of Nations were handed over to the United Nations.
