What is ITU(-T)'s connection to the UN?

The standardization work of ITU has considerable roots, starting in 1865, with the birth of the International Telegraph Union. It became a UN specialized agency in 1947, and the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (CCITT) in 1956. It was renamed ITU in 1993.
