List of vetos exercised by the US government in the UN Security Council

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
General Assembly of the United Nations.

This is a list of the vetoes exercised by the US government in the United Nations Security Council, from earlier to current. The United States are from 1966 to 2011 the second state with more vetoes in the Security Council, with 82 of these, behind USSR with 121 vetoes between 1946 and 1989.[1]

The abuse of the veto in the Security Council is versed in Chapter 2 of the United Nations Charter and fits it.[2] According to the political scientist Phyllis Bennis, "The US is the reason why the UN is not able to play the role your letter requires, which is to stop the scourge of war" and "The United States vetoed and threaten to veto in the Council Security and meetings such as the General Assembly or the Human rights Council, where there is no veto, they threaten other countries."[3] Although the term "veto" does not appear in the UN charter,[2][4] according to historian Geoffrey Roberts, the vetoes system was a requirement of the Soviet Union and the United States, to avoid wars like World War II.[4][5] Smaller countries and religious groups, among which are worthy of note, Christians emphasized the need not to have a veto policy in the organization.[4] China, Russia and the United States made statements in 2016 that defended the right of veto in the Security Council.[6] The veto power of the United States also appears in two other international organizations, the World Trade Organization and the World Bank.
