    I would like to invite all delegates to discuss a peaceful resolution to the Korean War (Hypothetical) Scenario.
    I invite you all to the
    Austria Center Vienna, curteously provided by Radgebanter, our Austrian representative. As you arrive at Vienna International Airport, you will be taken by Bundespolizei and UN Police to the conference halls. Details for personal security can be run past Austria and the Secretariat in the Summit Invitation (just for fun). Catering can also be dealt with there, if we want.

    Perhaps we can talk about
    1) Reunification
    2) Humanitarian Matters
    3) Border Disputes
    4) Missiles
    5) Nuclear Weaponry
    6) Democratic Elections


    The last miliary positions and maps are listed in the Invitation thread.

    The DPRK is glad that we are finding a peaceful end to this conflict.

    on reunification:

    The DPRK fully supports reunification. Our recommendation for this union would be similar to that found in the UK. There would be a democratically elected government, but also a hereditary branch of government with veto powers. This is because the public do not always know what is best for them, and this branch would have the full time job with all the powers of research that go with it in order to help the democratic government.

    on Missiles and nuclear arms:

    We cannot see a reason to stop developing these arms. Many other nations have them and we only wish to have them for deterrence.

    Firstly The Federal Republic of Austria warmly welcomes all nations to the summit in our beautiful city of Vienna, please consider our city your city! We hope you enjoy your stay in our capital city.

    Austria is very thankful this summit has come about to find a definative end to this most worry of conflict in the region.

    Everyone is Austria would like all nations to pay thanks to their soldiers who risk their lives everyday fighting for what their country believes in, it is those who do the most dangerous and patriotic jobs, while we are in the safety of offices and buildings sometimes a thousand miles away from our citizens facing death.

    ________________________________ _______________________________

    Addressing the Federal Republic of Austria's position on the following issues:

    Reunification: Austria believes this issue is down to the two countries themselves but we believe any reunification should only ever be undertaken in a peaceful and diplomatic mannor.

    Humanitarian Matters: We as a neutral country have only a humanitarian interest in the country, the issue of the health and welfare is key. As previously stated our observational force would be more than happy to provide emergency aid to any citizens in the region who need it.

    Border Disputes: This is an issue left between two countries to resolve peacefully

    Nuclear Weaponry: Austria being a neutral country is strongly against all forms of weapons of mass destruction, possession of these weapons always brings the chance of use. We have seen before the damage and horror nuclear weapons can cause.

    Democratic Elections: Being a democratic country, we see democratic elections as key to a strong society. The people should choose their leader; someone with who they have faith and confidence in.

    The Republic of Turkey is happy that the peace process is moving forward. This delegate hopes an agreement can quickly be reached.

    On Reunification: This is ultimately up to the two nations. The Republic of Turkey does support the idea of reunification but only if it is done peacefully and diplomatically. No force on either side should be used. This would only be a step backwards, and in this delicate situation, nothing should be done to breach the peace.

    On Humanitarian Issues: The Republic of Turkey feels that helping human conditions in the nations is key to resolving the concept. The Republic of Turkey understands that a low quality of life may result in citizens losing trust in their government, therefore, this delegate encourages financial and medical aid but fears that any more military intervention may have a negative effect.

    On Border Disputes: The Republic of Turkey feels this is up to the two nations to resolve.

    On Nuclear Weaponry: The Republic of Turkey strongly discourages the development of any nuclear weapons. The current situation in the region is delicate. Adding weapons of mass destruction to an unstable region can be dangerous. The Republic of Turkey understands the DPRK's right and desire to pursue these weapons (as a deterrent) but this development should at least be delayed until the situation calms down.

    On Democratic Elections: The Republic of Turkey agrees with the delegate for the DPRK in that the people do not always know what is best for them; therefore giving them such an amount of power may not be so wise.

    Hopefully, this matter will be resolved soon.

    Italy feels that there is no reason why DPRK should have absolutely no deterrents whatsoever, however we request that you become much more internationally aware and open, especially concerning your nuclear arms and uranium enriching technology and means to this end.

    For what ends? Does the US disclose the results of all their military tests? Do they even inform the international community of these tests? Why should we be any different? Our military tests are classified for fairly obvious reasons of national security.

    The Republic of Turkey feels that the DPRK has a point here. However, the DPRK has shown a lack of co-operation and stability in the past, and therefore, cannot be fully relied upon. Still, though, it is your right to pursue deterrents in secret but it would mean a constant tension in the region

    There should be no tension. We have said many times that these are defensive only. Surely we have more right to have these arms than America? After all, we have not used these weapons. I am not trying to dig up the past, but we feel that our defensive program is needed for the safety of the Korean people.

    Estonia is happy to see these peace talks start.

    Reunification

    Estonia echoes Austria's response, that it is up for the two countries to decide whether or not reunification should occur, and that this decision should be free from any political or military interference.

    Humanitarian Matters

    Humanitarian issues in this conflict have been the major concern of the international community, and should remain so. Citizens of the DPRK and the RoK should not have to pay the cost for their nations disagreements.

    Border Disputes

    While Estonia, and i am sure the international community as a whole, would be willing to assist in such disputes, Estonia believes that these should be resolved as far as possible in peaceful negotiation between the two parties.

    Missiles/Nuclear Weaponry

    While these issues are important, Estonia doesn't believe that they come under the mandate of these peace talks, and would suggest that this contentious issue is left for a UN wide discussion on such weapons at a later date.

    Democratic Elections

    Estonia highly values democracy, and believes that it should be for the people to decide, in the end, whether or not reunification should occur, and if so, democracy should undoubtably be the basis of the reunified Korea's political structure.

    Democratic Elections: The Netherlands naturally supports a democracy with a government that has the consent of the people.

    Malta feels the following:

    Reunification: Malta strongly detests Reunification.

    Humanitarian Matters: Malta feels that any Humanitarian needs should be dealt with before anything else.

    Border Disputes: This is an issue left between two countries to hopefully resolve, however Malta will tolerate a Neutral Zone.

    Nuclear Weaponry: Malta feels that both country's should stop any Nuclear weapons development. Not that South Korean are.

    Democratic Elections: Being a democratic country, we see democratic elections as key to a strong society.

    1) Reunification
    Ultimately, this should be an issue for the RoK and DPRK. France is not against reunification, but we do not believe that either nation should be pushed or bullied into it by the other. France strongly urges both countries to hold public referendums on reunification.

    2) Humanitarian Matters
    The safety and wellbeing of RoK and DPRK citizens must be the number one priority at all times. We urge the DPRK to accept international assistance to distribute food aid to the 9 million citizens that are in food poverty.

    3) Border Disputes
    This is an issue for the RoK and DPRK. If reunification does not occur, we would suggest an 'as you were' attitude, with the north-south border returning to the 38th parallel.

    4) Missiles and Nuclear Weaponry
    This is an issue for another time, however we must voice our opinion that the DPRK missile tests during this crisis were irresponsible and provocative, considering the tension on the Korean peninsula.

    5) Democratic Elections
    As a democratic country, France can only call on all nations to act in a democratic manner and to respect the will of the people.

    1) Reunification
    In theory the RoK is in favour of a possible unification with the DPRK, however we do believe any form of Korean unification will be a long process that shall need much deliberation. We are happy to begin the unification process, but we would live to advise the international community, the Korean People, and the government of the DPRK that this process will not happen over night.

    2) Humanitarian Matters
    Although the people of the RoK suffered from a harsh and illegal invasion by the DPRK our nation was able to managed quite well, with the exception of the loss of innocent civilian life and the loss of a number of brave troops from the RoK army. Therefore our nation does not need any international aid because our modern and highly effective infracture was able to remain intact, meaning medical aid and food aid was distriputed effectivley.

    The RoK is alarmed at state of the quality of life for the “average” person in the DPRK, therefore we urge the DPRK to allow aid into the country. As a goodwill gesture to the people of the DPRK, the RoK would like to put forward a RoK aid package, which would include medical aid and food aid delivered to the people of the DPRK. The aid would have to be delivered by volunteer organisations from the RoK, however, we would be willing to work with DPRK authorities to find a solutions to ensure the aid is passed to the most needy civilians.

    3) Border Disputes
    We request that all borders are re-drawn to that of before the conflict begin, which would include the RoK taking full control of the new demilitarized zone, which is currently under European control.

    4) Missiles and Nuclear Weaponry
    We urge the DPRK to halt their nuclear weapons ambitions, and we feel that until the DPRK demonstrate their commitment to nuclear non-proliferation, we cannot hold unification talks.

    5) Democratic Elections
    The RoK is committed to democracy, and we would encourage the RoK to do the same. The RoK understand that democratic elections in the DPRK would be a huge step forward for this nation, and the RoK would be more than happy to provide assistance in the transition.

    On reunification, what does the RoK think of our proposal for reunification? (found on post #2 of this thread)

    On humanitarian aid, Would the RoK support the DPRK if we made moves to join the world bank? The DPRK prefers for jobs including distribution of aid to be given to citizens of the DPRK if possible. We would like to thank the RoK for the offer of help, and hope we can work together for the good of Korea as a whole.

    on Border disputes, the DPRK would like to see the current border remain until after these talks, however we do agree that they should go back to how they were when these talks are at an end.

    On missiles, In an ideal world nuclear arms would not be needed. However we do feel they are required to act as a deterrent to other nuclear armed nations.

    On democratic elections, As you can see from our reunification offer, we are not trying to remove the ideas of democracy from Korea in the event of reunification. However we feel it is unfair to ask the average citizen to put in the research required to vote in the best way. Most will not put this effort in as they don't have the time, and we feel this makes an election a popularity contest. We feel that there is a need for a non elected body who have the time and ability to do the research needed to direct the country.

    In principal the RoK can see the benefits of having a "house" of hereditary government, but feels that the majority of the power should be with the democratically elected government. The RoK would like to stress the importance of "people power", and cautions the DPRK not to underestimate the ability of its citizens.

    The RoK will work on a brief outline of how we could like to see aa reunified Korea to be governed. The RoK would like to stress that our nation will have to hold a referendum to determin whether a unified Korea can be obtained, we feel this is important to ensure that people's wishes are followed. The RoK would encourage the DPRK to follow in our footsteps at some level at the very least.

    With regards to our aid offer, would the DPRK allow our volunteers to deliver the aid under supervision from your officials.

    The DPRK is not questioning the ability of its citizens, rather the time they have to spend on these area.s. Members of government get paid to reasearch these areas in detail. Thus they have the time required to do it. To an average citizen that amount of dedicated research is impossible without them and their family starving. We fear that this method would be too open to propaganda to be used in full.

    The democratic element would have more power, as they would be the only part able to propose change. The hereditary part would only be able to block change, not change anything their self.

    The DPRK is willing to hold a referendum on the issue, however we cannot agree to allow that to be the single deciding factor in this.

    The DPRK would prefer it to be the other way around. However our people are in need of aid and we would be willing and thankful for supervised Korean volunteers to enter the DPRK.

    RoK wil be happy to provide any aid required to the DPRK, and feel that the consessions which the DPRK have made are a great step forward in the relationships between both our nations.

    The RoK does feel that the DPRK proposed system of government in a unified Korean nation would be a good framework, which we could implement with a little fine tuning, but overall, the RoK is pleased with the option put forward by the DPRK.


    The RoK is pleased that the DPRK will consult its citizens with regards to the unification on the country, and we feel this shows great progress by the DPRK.

    We look forward to working with the DPRK on many more matters, including trade, and human rights matters.
