The 15-member Security Council is the only body of the United Nations that can make decisions that have legal force, while the five permanent members – Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States – have veto power. Ten non-permanent members of the Security Council do not have such a right. Periodically, some parties make calls to deprive this or that state of the right of veto.
