The Enemy State Clause is a passage of article 53 and 107 as a half sentence of article 77 of the UN Charter. Thus all 'enemy nations', they which have lost the Second World War, will face consequences by 'aggressive behaviour' from the other UN states. These consequences can be enforced without permission of the Security Council by any state. The measures include military interventions. An enemy state is "any state which during the Second World War has been an enemy of any signatory to the present Charter".[1][2][3]
