That the High Contracting Parties reaffirm their desire to remain in an inter-American system consistent with the goals and principles of the United Nations and the existence of the Agreement on International Peacekeeping and Security Issues suitable for regional action; The Treaty of Rio (1947) was an agreement that keeps the Republics of the Western Hemisphere united in a mutual defence system. The treaty, also known as the Rio Pact or the Inter-American Mutual Assistance Agreement, came into force on 3 December 1948, when two-thirds of the Member States ratified it. The treaty lost its influence in 1982, when the United States supported the United Kingdom in its war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands. Yet, after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York City and Washington, D.C. the United States invoked the treaty and attempted to invade Latin American countries in their war on terror. Latin American nations expressed support for the United States and the Rio Treaty at an OAS meeting after the attacks, but many countries did not follow subsequent U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2002, Mexico left the treaty on the grounds of the need to present a new agreement. A rio aims to provide and facilitate sufficient information for new entrants on the network of a dominant airline or other airline, in order to assist in its decision-making processes, and to lay the groundwork for negotiating an interconnection agreement. The UN Convention on Combating Desertification (UNCCD) is an international agreement that combines the sustainability of land management and soil degradation issues with the environment. The convention focuses, among other things, on the restoration of degraded ecosystems in arid areas.
 UNCCD, made up of 197 parties, is working to « create a future that avoids, minimizes and reverses land degradation and mitigates the effects of drought in affected areas at all levels. »  … The Stockholm Declaration (1972) and the Rio Declaration (1992), issued by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, required states to ensure that activities under their jurisdiction did not cause environmental damage to other states or territories.
