The Security Council has a primary responsibility, under the UN Charter, for the maintenance of international peace and security. The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties of a dispute to settle it through peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.
