Position paper of the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya on the topics to be discussed within the Security Council meetings on 1- 5 April 2008.

Dear fellow members of the Security Council,

I, hereby present the stances of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya on the topics to be discussed within the UN Security Council meetings on 1- 5 April 2008.

Topic A: Human security in Timor – Leste

The Great nation of Libyan Arab Jamahiriya recognizes the difficulties that the country of East Timor has to deal with, regarding its colonial past and its decolonialisation, as the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya had to go trough similar processes in order to get to the point where we are at today. Constructing a prosperous nation in the name of all its inhabitants is a challenging task. The people of Timor Leste will eventually have to cooperate with one another and live together peacefully; a strong central authority is therefore highly desirable.

Therefore the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya thinks that the UN could play a significant role in helping the authorities within Timor Leste to develop themselves further and thus to improve their governance skills in order to retrieve more control over its civil society and its population. The population of East Timor should gain faith in their central authorities, faith in the authorities can help develop the country and make it a prosperous nation. Providing the central authorities with better governance skills and gaining the faith of the population will take some time, and therefore in the meanwhile the UNMIT mission should be extended for at least another two years and should emphasize on the main human security facets and nation state building activities.

The different securities being described within the committee guide to the upcoming conference (e.g. economic security, environmental security) are certainly also to the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya’s point of view of great value. Hence once a strong central authority has been put into place, and thus the political security has been improved, the other factors can shortly follow. According to the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya it is better to focus on, only one or two main factors regarding the situation in Timor Leste, and leave the other factors to the newly developed authorities and the population itself. This is the most realistic mandate at the moment, and will hopefully lead to some quick significant improvements for the situation in Timor Leste. The Libyan Arab Jamahiriya would be willing to agree to any new resolution on the situation in Timor Leste, which emphasizes on nation building skills and some basic human security facilities for within the meanwhile. Also any further (financial) contributions needed are negotiable.

Topic B: Georgia- Key to stability in the Caucasian region

The great nation of Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, beliefs that the situation in the Caucasian region needs to be closely monitored. The UN mission UNOMIG has been active within the region ever since August 1993, and has faced quite some turbulence. The situation within the country of Georgia seemed to have stabilized after the Rose revolution of 2003, however within the past year we have noticed that still some political struggles exist within the country. Also considering the still rather unstable situation within the region concerning the Abkhazian case, the UN can of course not suddenly leave the region before having consulted all of the actors involved.

Another point of concern might be the future plans and ideas of the Georgian government, as it is aiming to become a NATO member and possibly even integrate into the European Union. Of course these developments might still take quite a while, and still then they are not completely certain, hence they are a point of concern for the region. Moving towards the west might not seem such a problem, however this might have some effect on Georgia’s “relationship” with Russia and thus it might affect the regional stability.

The Libyan Arab Jamahiriya does not necessarily suggest that the UNOMIG mission should be extended, but we do suggest that some research within the region is necessary before the troops are removed. All of the regional actors need to be involved in the consultation, and a fitting solution needs to be found. The Libyan Arab Jamahiriya beliefs that the region does certainly still require close monitoring by the international Community. However the Arab Jamahiriya also beliefs that greater responsibility should be given to the regional key actors involved, in order to let them come up with actual solutions and to solve their indifferences ones and for all, rather than keeping the situation like it is now; with an international community playing the impartial police officer.
