What is UNSC ?
As one of the principal organs that makeup the United Nations, the Security Council is mainly charged with the maintenance of international peace and security. It consists of 15 Members, and each Member has one vote. As per the United Nations Charter, all Member States are bound by the Council's resolutions. The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to international peace or an act of aggression. The UNSC aids the parties of a dispute in settling the matter through peaceful means and may recommend methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. However, in dire situations the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to preserve or restore international peace and security. Besides its main responsibility of upholding global peace, the UNSC also recommends to the General Assembly the appointment of the Secretary-General and the admission of new Members to the United Nations. Moreover, the UNSC has the authority to approve any changes to the UN Charter.
