UN 70th

Seventy years ago, the United Nations Charter was signed and the United Nations was created. The Charter also established the UN Security Council, whose primary responsibility is to work to maintain international peace and security. There are 193 members of the United Nations, and 15 members of the UN Security Council: the five permanent members (China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and 10 non-permanent members elected to two-year terms.
