MUNIC Day 2

The Model United Nations Introductory Committee explored multiple different topics today, including nuclear weapons. Delegates debated whether or not to dispose of all stockpiles, how they should be inspected, and how countries could slowly get rid of their supply. However, delegates questioned how fair this really was because some countries would be required to destroy a significant portion of their weaponry, while others would only be required to dispose of some. Fortunately, a delegate answered this question by explaining that those countries who discarded many weapons were countries who already had a large amount and those who disposed of only a few were countries who already had a smaller amount. Djibouti, South Sudan, and Botswana focused on how countries could be educated on why nuclear weapons have no positive impacts on the world and how their use could be halted.
