The General Assembly of The United Nations,

Whilst Israel applauds the work this resolution tries to do, it feels that in relation to clause 5, a colonised Nigeria may be more economically sustainable than a sovereign state, because of outside investment. Does Serbia not agree?

A sovereign state would have full control over it's economy - both fiscal and monetary policy. It would would better for the citizens of Nigeria if their own elected government were able to set such policy in order to grow it's economy in the interests of the population. It isn't good to have a foreign coloniser dictating government policy to a population.

Israel agrees with this but urges Serbia to see it from the other side of the argument - in a time of world economic downturn, sovereign states may not necessarily be the best option (for example, Greece) where the world's superpowers can invest money into the country by colonising it.
