After the Second World War, different states agreed to formulate the UN Security Council with the intent of avoiding reoccurrence of conflict between countries. The priority area of focus is the affirmation of security and peaceful coexistence in the world. The IGOI has to approve the changes that may happen to its charter, and this includes the adjustments to human rights. It is involved in operations that quell infighting, conflicts between countries and any event that can threaten the lives of people (Deutsche Welle, par. 2). The assembly can also institute sanctions that can affect a country politically and economically with the intent of adherence to formulated policies.
The UN Security Council is concerned with the case in Nicaragua since more than 300 people have died and more than 2, 000 injured (Deutsche Welle, par. 9). It is in its mandate to preserve the lives of people by ensuring there is peace and security in the country. Under this condition, the leadership of the assembly has to consider all possible avenues that they should deploy to ensure restoration of normalcy (Abrams). The council has to discuss the events, the cause of the conflict and the probable course of action that it will take to rectify the situation. On this note, the council is concerned with the oppressive system that the government is using against the people.
The Security Council has the
authority to induct international sanctions that could have a significant
impact on the political and economic environment of Nicaragua. By involving the
member countries that influence the world, it will be an instrumental factor
that will instill change in the state. For instance, there is the indulgence of
the United States and the United Kingdom to formulate measures that will avert
continuance of the infringement of human rights (Deutsche Welle, par. 5).
Through such associations and coordination, it is easy to control the situation
and restore peace.
