A resolution of a UN organ does not by itself constitute a solution. It may express opinions in its preambular or operative paragraphs, and it may request or urge some person or body to do something which the organ concerned considers desirable. Occasionally, in the case of the Security Council, and particularly if the Council has formally determined that world peace has been threatened or breached or that an act of aggression has occurred, all or part of a resolution may be mandatory or binding, in which case the operative verb will be decides or orders or demands or some similar compelling expression; but because the Security Council has only limited moral authority and has hitherto disposed of only limited coercive power, mandatory decisions may not be effective unless resolutely supported by UN Members, including those that did not vote in favour of the resolution or were not even members of the Security Council at the relevant time.
