Summary:- The recent news about the veto power in the UNSC related to the Gaza ceasefire highlights the complexities of international diplomacy and decision-making within the United Nations. A resolution proposed by the United Arab Emirates, co-sponsored by 97 Member States, called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. However, it was vetoed by the United States in the UNSC, citing reasons such as the resolution’s failure to condemn Hamas’ terrorist attacks and to recognize Israel’s right to self-defense. This veto led to significant global disappointment and criticism. In response, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire and compliance with international law. The situation underscores ongoing debates about the UNSC’s veto power, its implications for global peace and security, and the need for more inclusive and effective diplomatic processes.
