The U.N. played a central role in the Afghanistan Accords under which the Soviet occupying Army withdrew; the U.N. was a forum used to fashion the cease fire in the Iran-Iraq war: and the U.N. is the implementing force for the Namibian agreement. In 1988, it received the Nobel Peace Prize for its peacekeeping forces. Through its specialized agencies, the U.N. plays a major role in the nuclear non-proliferation regime, coordinates worldwide research on AIDS, battles illicit drugs, provides massive refugee assistance and many other specific programs.
