He explained the course of the UN history in four different time periods, along with the explanations on the Peacekeeping Operations and regional disputes. He then talked about the relationship between Japan and the UN in pre and post-Cold War periods along with the contribution of Japan to PKO and Official Development Assistance (ODA).
