Selected Speeches Of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I



CHAPTER V

UNITED NATIONS INTERNATIONAL


In 1923 His Imperial Majesty, the Regent, and Heir Apparent secured membership of Ethiopia to the League of Nations. Although the League abandoned his country to the aggressor, this did not dampen his faith and belief in International Organizations. Thus, in 1945, when 50 nations met in San Francisco to establish the United Nations, Ethio­pia, under the Emperor’s leadership, was one of them. He has the distinc­tion of being the only Head of State that had the unique privilege of having addressed both the League of Nations and the United Nations. For His Imperial Majesty the U. N. is considered “Man’s last hope” to maintain and preserve world peace.
