The UFO files released pertain to the declassification of UFO files, by member states of the United Nations, spanning a 50 year period from 1947 to 1997. The joint decision to release UFO files was considered prior to the year 2002.[1] Of The Big Five, France was the first country to release its UFO files, which happened in March 2007.[2] GEIPAN, under the national space agency,[3] unveiled a website documenting more than 1600 sightings spanning five decades, reports New Scientist magazine.[2] The initiative included the United Kingdom, Ecuador, Denmark, Brazil, Sweden, Canada and many other allied countries,[4] releasing files between the years 2007 to 2013.[5]

Lt Gen interview 1989 mentions an “Awareness Program” that is put in place to disseminate alien/UFO phenomena to the public. The interview was conducted approximately eleven years before the joint decision was made, by member states of the United Nations, to release UFO files to the world. The decision is believed to have been made in the year 2000.
