Security Council Resolutions: international diplomacy's most "powerful" tool
United Nations resolutions agreed to in the Security Council are still one of the most powerful tools in international diplomacy.
That's according to a former United Kingdom Ambassador to the UN, talking on the eve of the adoption of the Council's 2000th Resolution.
Resolutions are voted on by five permanent and ten rotating non- permanent members of the Security Council.
Daniel Dickinson asked former Ambassador, Sir Jeremy Greenstock, why resolutions are so important in international diplomacy.
