Context: China defended its controversial move to block a joint India-U.S. effort to place a Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist on the U.N. Security Council’s 1267 committee sanctions list.

Type of UNSC Resolutions:

A UNSC resolution is of two kinds:

  • One is obligatory: An obligatory or binding resolution of the UNSC is passed under Article 39, Chapter VII of the UN charter.
  • Other non-obligatory: A non-binding resolution of the UNSC is one that is passed under Article 33, Chapter VI of the UN charter.
  • During UNSC voting, abstention by non-P5 members merely means that temporary members do not wish to take sides in a resolution.
  • When a P5 member abstain from a resolution, it is called a Veto. Resolution fails in this case.

Important Resolutions adopted by the Security Council in 2022:

  • Resolution 2650 : The situation in the Middle East (UNIFIL)
  • Resolution 2650 : The situation in Mali
  • Resolution 2648: The situation in the Central African Republic
  • Resolution 2636: Reports of the Secretary-General on the Sudan and South Sudan (UNITAMS)
  • Resolution 2626: The situation in Afghanistan
  • Resolution 2623: Emergency Special Session of the General Assembly on Ukraine
