What is the difference between the sentence "UN seeks to promote international peace" and "UN promotes international peace"?

I think that in the first sentence, it's stated more like an objective of UN. In the second sentence, it's more like what UN actually does.

Is my inference correct?


You are correct.

someone seeks to do something

means it is an objective or aspiration.


someone does something

describes what they do.
