Question

Which among the following statements is wrong about the contemporary world order?

Solution

The statement given in option D is incorrect.

Explanation

While the UN may act as a moral restraint on the acts of nation states, its credibility has been severely challenged and eroded in the context of taking tough stands against countries violating international law. The US invasion in Iraq challenged the UN’s very existence. Similarly, the UN has only been able to deploy observers and has not taken any tough stand. In this regard, we may also cite the example of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
