The MHoC welcomes this resolution, but will refrain from supporting this resolution until the text explicitly states that this should be combined with a healthy lifestyle and exercise which can also increase people's happiness. Should said text appear within the resolution, then the MHoC will vote in favour of this resolution.
Also one of the statistically happiest countries in the world, Finland supports this resolution. On a personal front, however, Finland requests that more attention is given to other chocolate varieties other than the traditional chocolate bar, such as chocolate ice-cream. Finland is the largest consumer of ice-cream in Europe, a high proportion of which is chocolate.
Switzerland greatly supports this motion from our Russian friends and as the 2nd in the top three happiest countries in the world (2nd to our friends in The Kingdom of Denmark) we can see the great benefits of our chocolate. Also, as Switzerland as a nation is noted for Toblerone and other high quality chocolate products we believe that this motion will bring about newly created jobs to help our economy.
Libya feels that distributing chocolate to our people would be a fantastic way to celebrate daily the fall of the hated dictator Gaddafi. However, we are still rebuilding our nation due to the damage he caused. Would fellow nations be willing to sell us chocolate at a discounted rate, or even to help us create our own revolutionary chocolate bar?
Lithuania feels this motion has good potential as Lithuania recognises not only the benefits of chocolate but also the pleasure of such a delicious treat.
However one pressing issue that has been ignored in the motion and was briefly mentioned by Libya is that many producers of cocoa beans are not receiving the profits they deserve as multinational chocolate firms are holding these poor farmers to ransom due to the state of real and absolute poverty these farmers and indeed their home nations are in. This motion would be more productive if there was an initiative to ensure the producers of the cocoa beans are given a fair profit for their crops and are not taken advantage of by multinationals and chocolate producers. Lithuania will not sit quite if this motion sees the return of such unfair trading as was seen in the end of the 20th century and early 21st century.
Zimbabwe echos the thoughts of Lithuania and goes further to say that, although we have full trust in Russia's sentiments, we do not trust the western imperialists of the UK, US and allies. Zimbabwe feels these nations will take advantage of such a resolution to further damage African and indeed other underdeveloped nations for their own profit.
Madagascar approves the principle of this resolution, but is concerned by the amount of 'chocolate flavour' confectionary in Madagascar purporting to be chocolate but not actually containing any chocolate. It is worried that its citizens may be taken in by these false products and suggests that we need standards for chocolate provision that stipulate minimum cocoa content etc. Madagascar is proud of its national brand of "Robert" chocolate but is too in need of chocolate aid in order to enable its poorer citizens to participate.
