LEGAL Day 2

This morning the Legal Committee discussed the issue of national sovereignty. Delegates questioned how countries could protect their citizens from threats such as weaponry testing. The delegate from the United States of America proposed in her resolution that countries must be more aware of the areas where they are testing their weapons. The delegate stated, “Military personnel should make sure that all civilians are safely out of the testing zone, or made aware of what is about to occur.” This opened up a debate about when other countries should be made aware of possible harm towards innocent citizens and when they should become involved. Ukraine and Somalia worked alongside the United States of America to produce a super resolution that focuses on non-interventionist policies for countries.
