UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL

Being the body of the United Nations with the highest authority and power, Security Council was created after the World War II to address and adjust the failures of the League of Nations in the context of maintaining world peace. It consists of  5 permanent and 10 non-permanent member states and is the primary legislative body of the United Nations. France, People’s Republic of China, Russian Federation, The United Kingdom and The United States of America are the permanent member states who maintain a right of veto. Non-permanent members are elected to terms of two years as a consequence of an election held in the United Nations General Assembly. The council is tasked with the promotion of the international peace and security all around the world. Reserved powers of the Council includes the authorization of military forces such as Peacekeeping Operations and UN Task Forces to conflict zones, the establishment, and implementation of multinational sanctions. The decisions taken by the council are the only ones recognized as binding and they can not be subject to appeal by any other organ of the UN. In the forthcoming conference delegates in the highest committee of the UN will be discussing the question of the reform in the charter of the United Nations Security Council with an evaluation of the ongoing UN missions.
