Who has adopted a resolution on Sexual-Violence condemning rape as a weapon of war?

[A]. NATO
[B]. UNGA
[C]. UNSC
[D]. UNICEF

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

The German-sponsored resolution 2467 (2019), on sexual violence, was adopted by United Nations Security Council (UNSC) condemning rape as a weapon of war after 13 out of 15 members have voted in favour of the resolution while Russia and China abstain from voting. The resolution was adopted only after language on a woman's right to "reproductive health" was removed from the draft to avert a veto by the anti-abortion US administration.
