1.- Can the Security Council stop a war?
Well, first let’s review your mission.
The functions and powers of the Security Council are established in the Charter of the United Nations, the founding document of the Organization. It was signed on June 26, 1945, in San Francisco, at the conclusion of the United Nations Conference on International Organization (also known as the San Francisco Conference), and entered into force on October 24, 1945.
The Security Council is made up of 15 members (EN), five permanent seats belong to China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States, with ten non-permanent seats that rotate by election among all the member countries of the ONU. It is the body given primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.
