Switzerland would like the opportunity to be a non-permanent member of Security Council, we realise that our stay in the MUN has been short but the ability to be on the Security Council would allow us to build stronger relations with other nations of the SC and that of the GA.

Switzerland has played a big role in the UN; we have strengthened the role of the UN and closely followed up UN's Millennium Development Goals as well as promoting Human Security. In the MUN we accept the fact that we had a short stay so far but we have contributed to Indonesia in the MUN when they requested for aid for H5N1.

Switzerland plays an active role in the protection and promotion of human rights particularly with regards to the most vulnerable groups such as children, women and ethnic minorities.

India requests that Venezuela use capital letters and punctuate their writing properly, as to make it easier and clearer to read.
Thank you

The US would really appreciate this as well. I'm not used to reading 'raw' text.

You converted it to binary anyway. Makes no difference to you!

A combination of both I believe. The Rep should be a good & active debater, and your country should have no animosity towards that country.

Being one of the more important countries in the Middle East, the U.A.E would like to be nominated in the SC.

The U.A.E shares close ties with Iraq, Iran, the KSA and Kuwait. It makes influential decisions in the GCC, as it is one of the more prominent members.

The U.A.E alone boasts of having three-quarters of the world's heavy machinery, including cranes, trucks and cargo ships. The development here is astounding.

U.A.E considers helping other countries a duty. The Tsunami and the earth quake in the sub-continent saw the U.A.E raise funds worth $9 Billion, including medicine, make shift tents, clothes and Professional help.

The U.A.E may be considered one of the 'new' members, but only when given a chance, will it be able to show the MUN its potential as one of the leading nations.

Hmm... you're right. But I merely stated that since so many people wanted to be on the SC, that could be a solution.

Swaziland would like to declare it's support for the UAE in it's application for the security council. We feel it would be an asset to the council providing an alternative point of view.

India worries that Iraq may be too unstable at the moment to sort out their own government, let alone take a place on the Security Council.
It is true, there is instability in Iraq. However, we feel that only with a direct link to the nucleus of the United Nations, albeit a temporary link, can we achieve a swift resolution - at least plan it, so the Iraqi people can more quickly realise the wonderous democracy we are being gifted. It is beyond our control that there is anarchy on our streets, but our political system and process, has never been more stable - and this prosperity will continue, if we take appropriate consolidatory steps. We feel this is one of those steps, and hope our application is seriously considered by all delegates.

Iraq does appreciate concerns from India, and thanks it for its foresight; we just feel as a people this is the direction we need to get things back on track in Iraq.

I have serious doubts about whether you have three-quarters of the world's heavy machinery in the UAE. Indonesia would like the Ambassador to provide reliable sources to back up such statements. We, on the under hand, do consider ourselves as represetatives of Muslims all around the world (including the Middle East) since we are the largest Muslim country on the planet, yet practise moderate islam and have embraced all the traits of democracy.

Indonesia also believes that Switzerland should not be appointed to the SC since the country has only been part of the UN for approximately 8 years, and lacks the fundamental influence that is required to be a SC member due to its neutrality in most issues. We believe that Switzerland would be more effective in an advisory role.

Dang practically everyone has nominated himself for a seat here, heh.

The UK does not believe that Venezuela is ready for a seat on the UNSC, and neither do we believe that the UAE is read due to its low experience around these parts.

Also Switzerland, whatever happened to your policy of neutrality?

As requested by the Indonesian Representative, the U.A.E is willing to provide any, and all information needed to back its claims.

The U.A.E is one of the most influential Muslim countries in the Middle East, on par with Saudi Arabia. Most of its neighbours depend on the U.A.E as a reliable economic source; trading being the major market in this region.

We would like to remind Indonesia, that although it is the biggest Muslim country on the planet, it will hardly influence, or have a say, in matters of the Arab World, i.e. the GCC. The U.A.E being an Arab country, will be able to represent the reamining Arab countries in this region. This, however, CAN NOT be the case with Indonesia.

Perhaps is UK referred to an earlier statement made by me, I did mention that we were relatively new.

However, only IF elected will we be able to show our potential.

Bear in mind, were Iraq to be elected, then the U.A.E, just like all the other Arab Countries, would play a vital part in its reform.

I'm afraid I have to cateorically and emphatically reject that statement as trash. Indonesia has massive influence in the Muslim world, the Middle East included. People are what make up countries, and we sure have more than enough of them to match the total population of the Middle East. We are also at the centre of the war of terrorism, and therefore thing it is pertinent for us to be a part of the UNSC so we can represent the developing countries, Muslim community, as well as concerns about the use of violence in resolving conflict, regardless of the cause. The UAE on the other hand may be an economic powerhouse of the region but definitely lacks any distinct position on the global front.
