Embodying the United Nations' commitment to global security, the UN Security Council was established on October 24th 1945 to protect and maintain peace in the international community. Under the UN Charter, it is the only body in which Member States are mandated to comply with council decisions. The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It aims to settle disputes peacefully by calling upon the parties in question and recommending methods or terms of settlement. However, the body also has the power to take punitive measures through the use of complete or partial interruption of economic relations and the severance of diplomatic relations, or even authorize military intervention.
