Betty Lou's view of the President's speech at the UN Headquarters.

The United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are facilitating cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress, human rights, and achievement of world peace. The UN was founded in 1945 after World War II to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between countries, and to provide a platform for dialogue.

There are currently 193 member states, including every internationally recognised sovereign state in the world but the Vatican City. The Muppets have worked with their organization UNICEF on multiple occasions.
