It is to be noted that despite a nation’s size, power and other capabilities, all nations are considered equal in the UN Charter. Although, in reality it is quite clear that some states hold more power, wealth and capabilities than others. This does not give them the advantage to take any action they please against weaker states, as the principle of sovereign equality does not make way for that. This rule demands that a state cannot interfere in the internal actions of another state. A country can try convincing another country to take action or not take action in regards to an issue, or bring the matter before the UN to gather a worldwide opinion- but they cannot force them to do a they say. In this viewpoint, sovereignty has a negative aspect. Sovereignty has a positive aspect as well; it grants a nation complete power to control its internal affairs.
