The Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, with its primary responsibility being the maintenance of international peace and security. Within the UN, it is tasked to determine the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression, call upon the parties to settle a dispute by peaceful means, recommend methods of adjustment or terms of settlement, and in some cases, impose sanctions or authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security. The Council is composed of five permanent and ten non-permanent Member States, with each of the latter being elected for two-year terms. It is the only UN organ that can adopt binding resolutions.
