The United Nations International Law Commission has recently taken up the topic of how armed conflicts affect treaties, in line with the United Nations Charter's call for the formulation and advancement of international law. Since international treaties are one of the sources, it created draft articles for this subject and brought them to the General Assembly for consideration and decision-making.  It is the cornerstone of international law and the standard on which the international judiciary bases its decisions. Because of the rights and obligations it entails between the contracting parties, as well as the public and private concerns it controls, it forms the cornerstone of international relations and one of the key pillars of the international legal system. Because of this significance, it is necessary to understand the legal ramifications in order to apply the law's provisions correctly.  Additionally, to guarantee that treaties are upheld even in the face of shifting conditions and emerging facts, such as in the event of armed conflicts that pose a threat to both the enforcement of treaties and their very existence. The draft articles were created to address this problem; they serve as a legal guideline and point of reference for interactions between states, and this study analyzes the draft articles.
