Vietnam became a mere pawn on the chessboard for the two superpowers, the USA and the Soviet Russia to play their diplomatic game. Eventually, the people of Vietnam rose up in arms and fought for their freedom.

During the second World war , japan had conquered Vietnam like others ñations of the region.soon after the defeat of f japan , France came back to viatnam and took control of it as it was a Franch colony before the outbreak of the second World war. Soon liberation after the beginning of the war , , the Vietnamese started their liberation struggle first against the Japanese and thereafter against the Franch. The leader of this liberation movement was Ho Chi Minh who organized a liberation movement in my 1941. In September 1941, under his leadership, they declared Vietnam as the ‘ Demoratic republic of Vietnam’ and fromed a new government. 

This movement was mostly look led by the Communists Under the leadership of Ho Chi Minh.

Q 8 . How did UNO resolve the crisis in the middle East? 

Ans :  The middle East , since the conclusion of the second world war , became a trouble spots in world politics. The region became a disturbed area manily due to the division of Palestine into two countries namely Israel and Palestine. The UNO had taken initiative in forming a separate state for the jews who had no homeland of their own. This act of the UNO was not farvourally looked upon by the Arab nations. 

There fore,  soon after the formation of the new state of Israel on 14 may 1948, a war stared between the  Arab nations and Isreal which resulted in the defeat of the Arab countries.

Gamal Abdel Nasser , the president of Egypt , was the first undisputed leader of Arab nationalism and hie tried to nationalise Suze canal in July,1956 which froced England and France to declare wae on Egypt. Soon Israel too joined the war on the side of the European powers. Under the therat of Russian intervention, the war was brought to a close but the Israel – Palestine problem continued to remain a festering wound. In 1967, a war began between the Arab countries Egypt, Jordan and Syria one side and Israel on the other side over the issue of the closure of the Gulf of Aqaba to Israel shipping. As the War lasted only six days, this war came to be known as the ‘SiX Day War’. During surrounding Arab nations which further intensified the on- going tension between Israel and the Arab nations.

Once again a war started between Egypt and Israel in 1973 upsetting interational peace and tranquility. However Under America pressure, the war was brought to a colse. The Middle East, thus remained for a long time a trouble spot, ready to flare up any time. The UNO could do very little to ease the tension between Israel and the Arab countries. 

The peace of the middle East was distributed by the sudden attack of Iraq on kuwait. Kuwait made a strong protest to the UNO and asked her help in forcing Iraq to withdraw her army from Kuwait. Since Iraq refugsed to obey the UN request to Withdraw from Kuwait, it Organized a UN sponsored invasion of Iraq forcing Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait. 

But, unfortunately the USA during the gulf war converted the security Council or the UNO to Suit her whims and fancy. This has belittled the importance of UNO in the recent times. Thus, we can see that UNO intervened several times in the middle East crisis but crisis has not been fully solved mainly due to the American support of Israel.
