    NEW YORK (13 July 2015) - Today, Beijing's delegation to the United Nations has formally presented a draft proposal calling for the creation of a international scientific institution to be head-quartered on the island of Hainan, dedicated to the study and treatment of infectious diseases. "The Chinese Government believes strongly in the role of science in combating the spread of contagious diseases, and believe this proposed centre will be a large step towards further understanding highly infectious diseases and their patterns of infection. We call upon all member nations to support our proposal for the creation of the UNCSID [United Nations Commision for the Study of Infectious Diseases]." This comes on the heels of several further initiatives announced earlier today in Beijjing directed at limiting the spread of infectious disease.

    An equally-good question is why, apart from the obvious, they feel it's useful to have it in the Pacific nowhere near any other major power. A much more-sensible location would be a nation such as India or Spain. Spain in particular seems like a better location for the center, considering they're already on the front lines, as it were.
    Strictly quarantining the site of the outbreak is a more sensible solution. As Asia is the most populous continent on earth, so should the site of the research center be in Asia. China, India, and Russia would all be good choices.

    China is no stranger to the spread of disease. Just as we have moved decisively and aggressively to combat SARS and the avian flu in the past, we will remain vigilant against this new infection. Strong, decisive action is key to the prevention of the spread of any outbreak, and this new Spanish contagion is no different.

    Does South Africa forget so quickly? Within the last two decades, we have faced both SARS and H1N1. We can ill afford to let a contagious pathogen come into contact with a densely packed population center.

    Early containment and a rapid response will minimize the threat to all our peoples.

    And if we cannot contain the spread, having the research centre square in the quarantine zone is not exactly an ideal scenario! Science works better without roving mobs outside.

    We agree with this assessment.
    Luckily our country is both handily located and surrounded by water, so we'd consider a centre on UK soil most practical.

    I'm afraid that any European location must be considered potentially at risk; water might be an effective barrier, but we do not yet know what the incubation period is - for all we know it has already left Spain by air and there are a very large number of intra-European flights

    Not to mention the fact that, as quoted by your own Guardian newspaper, " Up to 400 trains pass through the tunnel (the English/French tunnel) each day, carrying an average of 50,000 passengers, 6,000 cars, 180 coaches and 54,000 tonnes of freight" and further "last year a record 20.4 million passengers were transported between Britain and France using the tunnel."

    Given those self admitted facts, I do not believe your borders to be nearly as insulated as you think they are from this new disease.

    The Russian Federation wishes it to be known that we intend to honor the CTSO, which calls for the mutual defense of its member nations.

    It is considered that the two regions of Central Asia and the single province in the Caucuses falls under this protection.

    Due to the proximity of CTSO member Belarus and NATO members Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania; the Russian government feels that a understanding with the members of NATO needs to be met.

    We see two ways to progress here. Either way, we feel we should transfer power to the people living in the state, rather than have their lives fettered by an overseas power.

    The first option is we set up a straight democracy in this island state, and then offer no more support to them than as would be expected from any other country.
    We'd expect to still grant the full British rights of nationality to all those leaving the isles and emigrating to Britain, but the military, judicial and governmental power of the state would be its own, or at least removed from us.
    We would expect to see the same agreement of non-interference and conformation of the isles' sovereignty from the Argentinian cabinet as well.

    The second option would be to set up a federal constitutional monarchy as per Australia.
    Here we would be caretakers unto the new state, but we would again abstain from interfering with the military, judicial and governmental powers that the state possesses, and they could nominate to become a republic at any point.
    Additionally, we would undertake a ballot within the isles, under the eye of the United Nations, to determine whom should be the caretakers of the new state.

    That is, the ballot would be cast as such to each citizen of the isles:
    To what land does the isles accept as their motherland?
    - The United Kingdoms
    - Argentina
    - Argentina and the United Kingdoms
    - No land

    The winner of the ballot would then be the ruling monarchy/government over the independent state, although ultimately it will be still sovereign unto itself, with the ruling power giving it the authority to rule on its own ability, while nominally approving all motions put forward by their government.

    Germany approves of the idea of the UN funding a research facility to look into this issue from a global scale. We also agree that China has had population-related issues with infectious diseases in the past, and while it's scientists must have learned much in the handling of those pathogens, Germany feels that the dense population in urban areas of the country pose a threat to a research facility in the case of infection.

    To this end, the German government proposes a revised proposal to the UN. Place the Research Facility in an international region of Antarctica. With the disease's rise in the warm, Spanish air, it is likely that the cold weather of Antarctica would be a deterrent to it's spread, which together with the uninhabited nature of the continent means there is near-zero risk of the research being interrupted. It's international status would mean that all nations would be able (and encouraged) to travel to the facility and dedicate time to researching what could be the world's next largest crisis.

    Placing a research station in Antarctica would limit the access to the station by member countries, and could cause discord that would undermine the Antarctic Treaty System. Would a cold climate member country, or at the very least a country in the Arctic would be a better choice? Russia has plenty of sites that would be perfect for placing a cold weather research station.

    The USA wholly supports China's research facility. Either in Antarctica or off the mainland of China. Shared research is shared stability and the United States believes wholly in putting it's money where it's mouth is to allow all mankind to be bettered by our collaborative efforts.

    In other news the USA publically pledges to assist it's EU allies in the current EU crisis. Offering financial aid to cope with the loss of income due to the Greece bailout and extending the offer to garrison troops in Europe in order to assist with security and reduce the financial load that a large military can place on smaller nations.

    Relevant nations should put their diplomats in touch with @Hjorvarthr to work out the details of any such arrangements.

    !Vote The minister from Germany votes to approve Referendum 1 for the stabilization of the Greek economy. The assured collapse of an entire state is not something Germany wishes to have on its hands, whatever our current alliances may be.

    We would also like to propose a modification to the current Funding proposal for an infectious disease research center. Germany agrees that the halting of any new cases is a must, but has hesitations about funding the research of highly communicable diseases in the middle of densely populated countries. Germany would therefore like to propose that, if funded, this research center be established on the continent of Antarctica, at a jointly-run facility where accidental outbreaks can be quarantined immediately without threat of further contamination of the populace.
