United Nations Security Council

The United Nations Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.

The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by 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.

The FIC is responsible for ensuring that sanctions which are designed to prevent terrorist financing are implemented.

The publications and information provided in this section relate to the cooperative relationship that exists between the FIC and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
