The second day of debates at Security Council offered us the chance to meet our honorable delegates again, this time having a greater will to discuss the worlds’ real problems. Even though the sessions from the second day seemed extremely productive, today’s sessions overcame them undoubtedly.
Firstly, the states presented us the resolutions for which they have been working extremely hard the whole night in order to find the best ways to stop the Yemeni Civil War, just as the USA Ambassador said: “We all want this conflict to end and establish the best solutions for that”. Initially, two alliances have been formed, the first one bringing France, Uruguay, Senegal and People’s Republic of China together and the other one reuniting the rest 10 states.
Although the Uruguay Ambassador stated that: “we should focus on the security issues first”, the rest of the countries didn’t seem to agree with him. As result, a 30-minutes-unmoderated caucus has been started. During the unmoderated caucus numerous alliances have been broken and recreated, as our beloved delegates couldn’t decide whether to prioritize providing humanitarian aid or fighting the terrorist organizations.
After extended discussions about the topic and which solution would be the best to bring the Yemeni Conflict to an end, the representatives of each state came to a final conclusion. The conclusion was expressed precisely later by the Ambassador of France: “Not working together is similar with trying to put something on fire with only water”.
Moreover, the Ambassadors adjudged to make a compromise and merge the two resolutions into one, so they could “get a satisfying outcome”, just as our Spain Ambassador revealed. By the end of the day, the whole Security Council Committee was working together in furtherance to extract the best ideas from the two paper works, intending to have the ability to solve the conflict after this.
The final resolution consisted of clauses such as sending the refugees into neutral neighbor countries in contemplation of being able to offer to the people from the affected areas the opportunity to a safer and better life. Nonetheless, the Ambassadors also aimed respecting the political transition outlined in the GCC initiative. What is more is the aspiration to reopening the airports from Yemen, thing that would be conductive to alleviating the import of food, medicine and other useful materials for providing an easier existence for the inhabitants.
Stay tuned for more news from the Security Council!
