If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
The United Nations Security Council is a major organ of the United Nations established as a revolving cabinet of countries which are given the task of maintaining international peace and security. Established in 1946 to address some failures of its predecessor, the League of Nations, the Security Council includes the “Big Five” permanent countries who won WWII—the United States of America, the United Kingdom, France, Russia, and China—as well as ten revolving members who serve two-year terms. The UNSC is responsible for focusing on all situations which threaten international peace, work towards diplomatic resolutions between opposing countries, and enforce such decisions through the deployment of peacekeepers. The Security Council is also involved in the appointing of the Secretary-General of the General Assembly.
