How the security council works
The United Nations Security Council is a 15 member council. It can be described as part parliament and part secret diplomatic conclave. The procedures under which the council works on are sometimes puzzling and somehow mysterious. In open conduction of its business, the council would be seen voting with every member showing clearly their side of an issue, but most of their time is spent in secret ambassadorial and diplomatic negotiation trying to pursued or pressurize others.
However, the United Nations Security Council is a branch of the large UN that is charged with the maintenance of the security and peace between nations. As outlined in the United National charter, the Security Council has the duty of establishing peacekeeping operation, putting in place international sanctions, and giving authority for military action.
