NEW YORK, October 30. /TASS/. The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) convened for the first session of the day in the New York UN Headquarters, delegates put forward their opening statements for ninety seconds each and the delegate of Brazil discussed imposing harsh sanctions on North Korea. When asked to elaborate, the delegate mentioned that Brazil would disincentivize trade with North Korea through larger custom taxes and by imposing economic sanctions on North Korea. The committee then moved on to verbal lobbying.
In the thirty minutes of verbal lobbying, most delegates were quick to confront the delegate of North Korea regarding their earlier withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The delegate of the United States questioned the delegate of North Korea regarding the same, to which the delegate responded with asserting the threats they inferred as the United States “called North Korea nicknames”. The delegate of the United States was soon to question whether the “offensive nicknames” were worth having a potential third world war.
The delegate of North Korea also stated that they would sign the Non-proliferation treaty and agree to disarmament if other powerful nations ensured the safety of North Korea. Consequently, delegates of other nations questioned the reliability of North Korea since they had backed away from the NPT multiple times in the past.
In the following moderated caucus, proposed by the delegate of Turkey, North Korea once again asserted that they would be willing to sign the treaty if ensured safety. However, as of now, nuclear arsenals were their only mode of self-defence. The delegate concluded, “the delegate of North Korea only has one thing to say: North Korea has made mistakes in the past but is improving and trying its best to amend peace and security”.
However, the delegate’s words did not convince most. France very strongly voiced out, “This isn’t a question of if this will lead to inevitable destruction, but when.” The delegate of the United States and the Russian federation agreed to the same. Could this be a potential bloc in the near future? One can only wonder.
