ITSO was established in 1971 through an inter-governmental agreement to provide, on a commercial and non-discriminatory basis, global public international telecommunications services using satellite technology.The development in itself was an implementation of the UN General Assembly resolution 1721 (XVI) regarding the universal access to communication by means of satellite.
