This week lecture was about the United Nation. Dr. Faosy brought us very informative information about the United Nation. I learnt that the United Nation has its six official languages which are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish. Before this I was told that the other five languages are fully accepted in the United Nation and all the expenses are paid by the United Nation but Arabic is accepted but the expense of its usage is paid by the Arabic governments I didn’t get the chance to ask this question but I have I will get answer for it somehow.
I learnt that the Headquarter of the United Nation is in New York City, with more offices in Geneva, Nairobi and Vienna. I wish Dr. Faosy could explain to us the history behind the designating place for the Headquarter of the United Nation. So, that we could have understood why the United Nation Headquarter is in New York City? Was it build there because the United Sates of America of America was the powerful country at that time or it was build there because any economical issue.
Moreover, I learnt about the security council of the United Nations other UN organization such as The World Food Organization and World Health Organization but they seem to be less important or something. Because it sounded that most of the United Nation budget is spent on political and wars.
As conclusion, today’s class was very informative and interesting it become more interesting when at the end of the class the students were asked the questions as and they came to the front of the class and answered the questions from their own perspective.
