Hello everyone!

I thought it might be a good idea to start a new topic to find out how everyone feels about the conference, if there's any questions, or if there's any specific issue you believe we should aim at during debates.

Also, please feel free to introduce yourselves so everyone gets to know each other.

Honourable chair and Respectable delegates.
Following are the Position Papers from the representative of the United Kingdom

Paper 1

Committee: Security Council
Topic: Human Security in Timor-Leste
Country: United Kingdom
Delegate: Hassan Sajjad Naqvi

The human security situation in Timor Leste has been a great issue since the past few years. Many steps have been taken in order to look after the human security condition of Timor Leste. United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste, has played a vital role in the achievement of the task of human security in Timor-Leste. The United Kingdom has actively been playing its part in all the matters regarding this issue.

The recent attacks on the President Ramos-Horta and Prime Minister Gusmao on 11 February underline the fact that the security situation and wider situation in Timor Leste remain fragile, volatile and vulnerable to setback. So it is for the people of Timor-Leste to do everything in their power to ensure a sustained, positive trend in terms of politics, security and sustainable economic and social development. United Kingdom believes that:

- firstly, continuing efforts to build a shared vision by the Timorese government and opposition and by civil society of what kind of country Timor-Leste should be, including by building on the multi-party discussions referred to by the Under-Secretary-General;

- Secondly, a determined effort by Timorese state institutions, with international support, to build capacity and deliver reform, particularly in the security and justice sectors. We look forward to receiving the findings of the expert mission to be dispatched by the Secretary-General with the aim of carrying through a thorough assessment in the field of policing;

- thirdly, a commitment by the Timorese government to full implementation of the 2008 budget, now agreed by Timor-Leste’s parliament;

This Council, the United Nations, and the wider international community are committed to help. But we remain mindful of a key underlying principle: that the international community’s goal should be to help the people of Timor-Leste stand on their own feet. We therefore need a forward-looking and proactive approach, which seeks to move beyond stabilization and into sustainable, national-led peace building. . We therefore ask that in future reports, the Secretary-General develop a medium-term strategy, with appropriate benchmarks aimed at achieving this end-state, in close and continuous consultation with the Government of Timor-Leste.

Peper 2

Committee: Security Council
Topic: Georgia – Key to stability in the Caucasian region
Country: United Kingdom
Delegate: Hassan Sajjad Naqvi

In the past, Georgia had strategic advantages over its Caucasian neighbors. Tbilisi, its capital was located in the middle of the Kura river valley which stretches from Turkey to Azerbaijan, and in the Middle Ages was already the commercial center of the region. After Caucasia's incorporation into the Tsarist empire in the 19th century, Tbilisi's fertile environs, mild climate, and traditional economic importance made it the center of the road and railway networks in the region, as well as its administrative and cultural center Its centrality to all transit traffic in Caucasia, including oil transported from Baku to Batumi and thence to Western Europe, made it the region's manufacturing hub, challenged only by the oil city of Baku in the early 20th century. Georgia's access to the Black Sea with major ports in Batumi and Poti made it central to the economic development of the whole region.

The United Kingdom has always played a vital role in almost all the aspects related to Georgia, in order to bring her up and to help her stand on her own feet. For this purpose

- Continuous British contribution to create an efficient Georgian army; Trainings of Georgian military and civilian personnel and English language training courses for military personnel;

- Support in political efforts towards conflict resolution in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, the regions of Georgia; The UK government supports the work of three UK NGOs in Abkhazia, Conciliation Resources (CR), International Alert (IA) and the Halo Trust. The British NGOs Conciliation Resources and Institute for War and Peace Reporting and the Tbilisi based NGO Studio Re have been involved in confidence building in Abkhazia;

The United Kingdom believes that Stability in Georgia depends on its neighboring Caucasian states. Greater economic and political interaction between the three states is almost inevitable. This interaction depends on many factors-the end of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. Abkhazia and South Ossetia: democratic stability in Russia: economic growth at home: and peace in the North Caucasus-but the interdependence of energy and transport developed in the Soviet period between the three Caucasian states was based on sensible economic planning. Should conditions change: as they will eventually, to allow the development of already existing all Caucasian links, then further economic cooperation will follow. Currently, however, the three states equate independence with vulnerability and a sensible division of labor between the three republics is an important issue to be looked at.

The United Kingdom requests all the members of this council to play their role stability in Georgia in order to have a stable Caucasian region.

Thank you all.
Looking forward to see you all at a healthy and well grooming conference.
