The first day of debate brought us numerous states willing to discuss and solve some of the biggest problems around the world: The Yemeni Civil War and the latent conflict between two nuclear powers (India &Pakistan).
As a beginning, the Ambassadors of the countries searched for the best ways to tackle AQAP in Yemen, which were considered to be the only solution to solve this conflict. The Russian Federation Ambassador expressed his idea of how the civil war might be ended: to wade into the control of all borders in order to be able to inhibit the connections between the weapon providers and the terrorist organizations.
Moreover, the whole Security Council had the sam e vision, that in order to bring the conflict to an end, there should be arranged an unification, not only between the European Union and United States of America, but also with the Middle East. Just as our beloved People’s Republic of China confessed – “we can only make a change as long as we stay and work together”.
Nevertheless, our Ambassadors have stated that the only way to re-establish the stability in Yemen would be not only to respect the state sovereignty, but also to listen to every minority and social group from Yemen, so as all sides to be fully engaged in the collaboration and also build a trustful connection.
Even though there have appeared disagreements between the cease-fire supporters and the peaceful states, the countries ‘ambassadors came to the conclusion that empowering all kind of social groups and also supporting democracy after picking a legitimate government which should work in the favor of people would be the main necessities to move forward.
Regarding the human beings that are living on the affected areas, the Angola Ambassador suggested to provide humanitarian aid and also to renew the dialog conference made by the GCC and implement the voted purposes: to enhance the budget for humanitarian aid and to reopen the airports from Yemen in order to offer the people the opportunity to leave and find a safer place for them and their families.
