JURIST Staff at 12:01 AM ET

On January 2, 1942, twenty-eight countries formally agreed not to make peace with the Axis Powers separately. At the time, all twenty-eight were fighting against the Axis as Allies in World War II. The agreement was part of the Declaration of the United Nations, signed the previous day.

During the preceding December of 1941, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had referred to this group of allies as the "United Nations".
