A renewed international peacekeeping effort, on October 7, 1942, the U.S. and British governments announced the formation of the United Nations. Prior actions from the League of Nations proved to be largely ineffective, as it was not able to prevent the beginning of World War Two. The main proponents of the UN were U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, whose meetings regarding Allied military actions resulted in the Atlantic Charter, and a UN resolution encouraging Allied nations to not enact treaties with Axis powers. This was a significant event in peace efforts following WWII, with the prime aim to avoid another global conflict.
