Poll finds global support for U.N.
by UPI

CHICAGO - A survey by the Chicago Council on Global affairs suggests people around the world favor strengthening the United Nations.

The survey, conducted with WorldPublicOpinion.org, involved respondents from 14 countries that together represent 56 percent of the overall population, including the United States, China, India, Russia and France.

The poll found the idea of "having a standing U.N. peacekeeping force selected, trained and commanded by the United Nations" was supported by solid majorities in every country, including 77 percent in Peru, 74 percent in France, 73 percent in Thailand and 72 percent in the United States.

Only two countries opposed the idea of "giving the United Nations the power to regulate the international arms trade," with 58 percent in the Philippines answering negatively and 42 percent of Argentineans disagreeing. However, the idea was supported by 77 percent in France, 75 percent in South Korea, 60 percent in Israel and 60 percent in the United States.
