The Disarmament Commission issues for AISMUN 2020 are:
Issue #1: Maintaining the major nuclear threat on the Korean Peninsula.
North Korea has an increasing and active nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. In January 2003, North Korea withdrew from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. They have conducted six major nuclear tests since 2006. North Korea is also maintaining an offensive biological and chemical weapons program. Even with heavy sanctions placed on North Korea, they have continued to test and create their weapons. North Korea tested their first international ballistic Missile in July 2017 and conducted a thermonuclear weapon test in September 2017. These tests have posed as a threat to the Korean Peninsula and to the entire world.
Issue #2: Mitigating the Effects of Nuclear Radiation in Major Asian Countries.
Major Asian countries including Russia, North Korea, Japan, and China are in possession of multiple nuclear weapons and artillery, as well as nuclear power plants and other nuclear resources. These resources are causing nuclear radiation, which if this continues will result in diseases and therefore a death toll in numerous areas all around Asia. In addition to this, they may require people in multiple vicinities to be evacuate. When addressing the dangers of such a source we will discuss its effects on people’s lives and possible solutions that could reduce and mitigate this radiation in Asia and all over the world.
Issue #3: Addressing the no-fly zone in Syria to prevent war with Russia.
The “no-fly zone” in Syria would mean that the US may end up going to war with both Syria and Russia. The US has demanded several times that Russia stick to what would eventually be a one-sided “no-fly” zone under the condition that the US warplanes would continue carrying out their airstrikes. When addressing the no-fly zone in Syria to prevent war with Russia we will look into solutions that can satisfy all parties. If this issue is not addressed properly we will not be able to ensure peace.
