The Security Council of United Nations, is the most powerful Council of the United Nations. According to the Charter, the United Nations has four purposes: to maintain international peace and security; to develop friendly relations among nations; to cooperate in solving international problems and in promoting respect for human rights; and to be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations. All members of the United Nations agree to accept and carry out the decisions of the Security Council. This Council has five permanent and ten nonpermanent members, who convey on times of possible importance. The UNSC was instrumental in resolving conflicts since it’s establishment.
