DISEC’s delegates started the morning session with an unmoderated caucus. Being genuinely enthusiastic and full of ideas, they seem to be ready to submit a fantastic resolution, hopefully until the end of the day.
The debates are still fruitful and energetic and the main discussion was about the draft resolution sponsored by France. It received constructive critique from China: “The theme is not emphasized”, while Egypt stated: “We have failed. We will support some of France’s proposals, although we’ll not vote for their draft resolution.”
A dramatic comeback consisted in Syria’s alternative draft resolution. The delegate’s speech aimed to have an emotional impact: “ Today, it’s not Syria that speaks, but a country representing the world. Dear delegates, history is in front of you. If your resolution was a revolution, this is something more.”-a direct call to France.
There is still a heated debate in the conference room. Amendments are added or withdrawn, and the final result is closer than ever. Will these two draft resolutions be merged? Will the Mediterranean regions’ status-quo finally change?
