(Reformed) Security Council

Under the Charter, the (Reformed) Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security and all Member States are obligated to comply with the (Reformed) Security Council's decisions. The (Reformed) Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the (Reformed) Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.
