“We believe the world is in a new phase of international relations. Quite different from the one through which we have just gone, not so much characterized by superpower conflict as by the outbreak of ethnic quarrels, guerrilla wars, all kinds of international disturbances, and we are convinced that international law must be given a larger role in the settlement of international disputes and in the solution of international problems.”
