The Chief Delegate of the United States, Warren R. Austin,
told the UN General Assembly on Oct. 30, 1946,
that the United States was bound by the principles
of law declared in the Nuremberg Charter, as well as by the UN Charter, saying that the Charter "makes planning or waging
a war of aggression a crime against humanity for which individuals as well as nations can be brought before the bar of international
justice, tried, and punished."
