    The UN has never decided to end the mandate system.

    From time to time the different bodies of the United Nations pass resolutions which contain operating paragraphs that begin with the words "requests", "calls upon", or "encourages", which the Secretary-General interprets as a mandate to set up a temporary organization or do something. These mandates can be as little as researching and publishing a written report, or mounting a full scale peace-keeping operation (usually the exclusive domain of the Security Council).

    The United Nations has not implemented the mandate system to form new states within recent years, however, they could still do so if they wished to. The problem would only exist in how effectively they could do so. The lack of action in these regards has prevented UN interference. For example, the UN decided not to separate the three religious groups in Iraq, which would have made the region more stable had they chosen to do so. They had the Palestine mandate shortly after WW2 for a similar reason. Apart from isolated instances where interference would have been beneficial, there have been no actual results.
