World peace, the greatest natural good mankind can possess, is a universal global responsibility. In its attainment all peoples, nations and states should share. Sacrifice, generosity and good will are its vital concomitants.
A necessary and urgent requirement for guaranteeing the ordered tranquility of mankind is the creation of a sound, reliable, and effective peace program. To this must be coupled such practical, juridical, international institutions as are necessary to ensure the application of the program to the realities of the present world crisis. This constitutes for peoples and states their major ethical obligation.
