The United Nations Security Council is one of the 6 main organs of the United Nations.

This council also sends peace missions to countries around the world and if military action is needed in any part of the world, the Security Council also implements it by resolution.
Like the United Nations, it was founded after World War II. The first meeting of the Security Council was held on January 17, 1946. The Security Council had long been weak due to the Cold War. But he played an important role during the Congo War and the Korean War. Apart from this, peace missions have also been sent to many countries as needed. The Security Council consists of 5 permanent members and 10 temporary members. Temporary members are elected every two years.

After the disintegration of Russia, the strength of the Security Council increased considerably and this led to peace operations in many parts of the world. The Security Council carried out several peace operations in Kuwait, Namibia, Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan and the Congo during the period of instability.
