Poland becomes a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for two years. The Polish side is to take part in discussions and taking decisions on the most important issues of world security. However, the real impact of the United Nations on these cases is more and more limited each year.
A correspondent for the Polish Radio, Voitszhe Zgedelsky, drew attention to the fact that the Security Council is one of the most important bodies operating under the United Nations.
The activities of the Security Council are devoted to the maintenance of peace, that is, in practice,one of the most important problems of the modern world. It mostly concerns armed conflicts, international politics, and some natural phenomena.
The Security Council consists of five permanent members, namely China, France, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom. And ten non-permanent members are elected for a two-year term. Besides Poland from January 1, 2018 Kuwait, Peru and the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire enters the Security Council.
The council solves the most important issues related to world security and can impose sanctions on member states. In recent years, the sanctions were mainly imposed on Syria and North Korea. However, in practice, UN actions are very limited. Most resolutions are basic appeals to respect international order, and more controversial actions are often blocked by permanent UN members who have the right to veto. In recent years, most resolutions on Syria have been vetoed by Damascus-affiliated Russia.
Poland becomes a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the sixth time. The country had previously performed this task in 1996-1997.
