Tempers flared and debating was robust when Secretary General Kristina Martin informed the delegates of Security Council of an abrupt crisis involving escalating conflict on the Bangladesh border.
“400,000 Rohingya in Cox’s Bazaar have been mysteriously armed. Upon meeting resistance at the Bangladesh border from armed forces and aid workers, they opened fire and continued their campaign. Death toll is uncertain as of now, but estimates place it as 80 foreign nationals and 340 Bangladesh armed forces.”
The Security Council immediately launched a debate on the crisis.
Tomás Imparato, Delegate of India, was infuriated andclaimed that Myanmar and India werebeing purposely targeting. The delegate then stated thatthere should be protection and border control to protect the civilians as well as to remove terrorism.
Everett Bullock, Delegate of Sudan, confidently called Tuka Alsour, Delegate of Myanmar, a ‘pathological liar’ when Myanmar stated that Myanmar security was combating terrorism.
Everett Bullock then made an amendment that stated that the Rohingya were entitled to fight for the land which was once there’s and called the deaths of certain civilians ‘collateral damage.’
Bullock then continued his demand for justice for Rohingya people without the intervention of the United Nations causing a conflict with Madison Graber, Delegate of Bangladesh. This then resulted in Everett Bullock being censored for 15 minutes.
Although Everett Bullock’s amendment did not pass, he did feel successful.
“Sudan was fighting a losing battle because the majority of the countries don’t share our ideals but I do believe I succeeded,” he said “I prefer healthy competition in everything and like that it was the house versus me.”
