The Helsinki Agreement, also referred to as the Helsinki Accords or 'The Final Act' were signed on the 1st of August 1975 by all of the European countries. Its main purpose was to unite European nations in search for peace and understanding between them all. This is a goal which was heavily worked towards after the consequences of World War II. The Agreement followed the goals and practices of the 'CSCE' which stands for 'Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe'. The Agreement's main principles focused on equal rights, human rights, respecting frontiers, peaceful settlements and cooperation between states.
