Violation of international agreements
A new international anarchy has arisen in recent years that defies international decisions on treaty provisions, specifically those initiated and/or made by the United Nations. This lack of adherence to a previously agreed upon decision-making body threatens to undermine security on both national and international levels.
Some reasons for the decline in strength of the UN Charter and Security Council lie within the UN itself: dangerous situations could perhaps be diffused before they reached the point of crisis if the Council kept an active watch on them by more systematic and less last-minute measures; the permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, UK, USA, USSR) should not allow their own bilateral difficulties to overshadow their commitment to the Council; the Council members should bear more collective influence when resolutions are not respected by those to whom they are addressed; the Council should devise wider and more systematic capacities for fact-finding in potential conflict areas and should be more responsive in sending good office missions, observers, or a UN presence, to such areas; and there should be explicit guarantees for collective or individual supportive action.
