The Continuous Crisis Committee (CCC) assembled in the fourth session to discuss their directives and plans of action. Their directive displayed points on military intervention, verbal negotiations, a providence of aid, and border claims. The paper received contributions from numerous countries such as India, Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia.
The delegate of India made points throughout the early occurrences of the session, in which the delegate continuously demonstrated a strong view towards the need of equality throughout the production. During the discussion of the first point, it was written that “India shall retreat their forces from disputed areas.” However, the delegate of India pointed out the absence of China within the proposed statement. With further deliberation and discussion, the point was renewed to state, “both nations shall be retreating their forces from the disputed areas.” The delegate made a well-intentioned point; however, it was not said with much clarity on how or why.
An interesting clause made in the directive of the committee states, “Encourages the provision of aid to the citizens of disputed area particularly Tibet, by all members of this committee and all member of state in various forms.” The clause consisted of sub-clauses such as financial aid, health, and surveillance. The delegate of Pakistan made a wise point, stating, “Pakistan believes citizens can be benefited from this clause as basic provisions can be provided but does not believe with the sub-clause of surveillance, because surveillance by all member states can lead to unintended consequences such as illegal spying on the citizens which is a violation of their privacy.” The clause has a great chance of success, knowing the capabilities of both India and China in aid providence; however, not much details have been disclosed, thus making the specific components of this clause still subtle.
The committee proceeded with a moderated caucus following the previous discussions on the joint directive. The committee has planned solid clauses and plans of action, though they are still deliberating on certain factors of the paper. They will soon proceed to the voting procedure. Overall, citizens of the disputed area have suffered enough and thus, this directive will be very crucial towards them all.
