an international agreement (1928) that nations would not use war to settle disputes. It was prepared by US Secretary of State Frank B Kellogg (1856-1937) and French Foreign Minister Aristide Briand (1862-1932), and signed in Paris by 15 nations, and then later by 62 others. The agreement failed because it lacked the power to prevent wars.
