The Disarmament and International Security Committee debated the topic on evaluating the use of foreign military bases. Most of the countries agreed on the fact that national sovereignty and existing regulations should be respected. The delegates of Oman, the United States, and Iraq believe that military bases would improve foreign relations and lead to more treaties between the two countries involved. Italy believes that a reduction in military bases would reduce criminal actions since military bases are a symbol of war and conflict. The delegates from Russia and China both stressed that they do not own any nonconsensual bases. Both countries deplored the use of nonconsensual bases.
