    Brazil is grateful for the support of Japan in this matter, but is somewhat surprised to see the representative styling himself as that of the Empire of Japan. Are there not great negative connotations associated with this name?

    Ahhh. Where do you draw the line between tradition/history and negativity?

    Brazil believes that there is a great danger of the current situation descending into violence. The UN force is at present already overstretched, and if conflict was to break out, this situation would be greatly exacerbated. A temporary increase in strength is therefore necessary to ensure that civilian casualties are not caused by either side as a result of violence. Indeed, there is already evidence of this taking place, with reports of up to 200 deaths and 40 disappearances. The importance of a strong UN force is clearly evidenced by the crucial role it is playing in the protection of the legitimate president.

    France agrees whole heartedly with the resolution and respects the tone in which it is set. Gbagbo needs to be removed and France does not recognize him as the rightful leader. It is good however that the citizens are starting to take action, we hope however, that this does not lead to a bloody revolution.

    The USA recognizes Mr. Ouattara as the winner and urges Mr Gbagbo to accept defeat.
    Furthermore the USA condemns all violence and human rights abuses because of this.

    Therefore the USA agree's with this resolution.

    According to the BBC there will be between 1000-2000 new peace keepers sent despite the vast amount already stationed there. Japan is unsure in this decision regarding it's outcome, but hopes for a more peaceful tommorow for the Ivory Coast.
