    Day 2 - Slumbering Giants
    QBhpm6s.png
    20th of July - 2015

    The Greek bailout is approved. To the joy of the Greek people money flows into the country. Thing's look hopeful until one of the countries major banking headquarters catches ablaze. After the fire is put out it's found that a large portion of the bail out fund have disappeared, along with all records pertaining to it.

    Reports come in that cases of the mysterious disease have appeared in Central America and Iran. The nature of it is still not public but the closure and increased security at airports and docks around the world is leading to some wild speculation on the news networks.

    The world is strangely quiet - Apart from the crash of Russian steel as legions of infantry and tanks crash across the Ukrainian border. Local forces stood no chance against the onslaught.

    Newly Infected Countries:
    Iran
    Central America

    Week 2 Thread Activity - Diplomats
    UN Summit

    Resolution 1

    Topic: International Research Station
    Sponsors: China, Nigeria, Russia

    The General Assembly,
    A new research station station dedicated to understanding and researching the virus must be constructed.

    We ask that the UN provides the funding to construct this station at a location agreed upon by diplomats

    If the issue is resolved: A research station is built at a chosen location, allowing the host country and allies (if the host country is an NPC nation) to reduce research costs by $1

    If the issue is not resolved: No negative results for failure.

    Diplomats must vote where the station is going to be based when they vote on the resolution - If the resolution passes the station will be built in the country with the most votes. If the resolution falls the station is not built.




    Resolution 2

    Topic: Congolese famine
    Sponsors: Morocco, Malawi

    The General Assembly,
    The Congo has gone through decades of conflict. While outright violence has died down, devastation remains.

    We ask that the International Monetary Fund helps provide financial support to allow for the import of much needed foodstuffs.

    If the issue is resolved: Terror in Africa is reduced by 1

    If the issue is not resolved: Potential civil unrest. Congolese conflict may resume.


    Only Diplomats may vote in this referendum
    !Vote in Blue to accept the resolution - Noting which resolution you support and including the name of the host country if you support resolution 1
    !Vote in Red to reject both resolutions

    The greatest time sink getting this out has been tracking down orders, and I'm sure there's still a bit to clear up.

    It's vital that there's an easy to find summary of all the actions each country takes - Beep me if you think a mistake has been made and we'll get it sorted pronto. All countries should have been updated on the nights results (apart from science, which happens in an hour)

    Freedom is up held in Ukraine, there is no repression there.

    Russia is simply seeking to right the historic wrongs of 20 years ago, nothing more.

    I have not spoken with our diplomat yet, but I speak from the bottom of my heart when I ask the other member nations to please help my African brothers in this time of need. In these trying times, we cannot allow violent instability to ravage any region.

    The Brazilian military would like to express it's analysts key concern that international politics are getting in the way of our response to a very real and present danger to no less than five continents. Border fortifications and deployment of naval blockades must become something that this assembly is willing to consider with all the gravity that they are due.

    China remains committed to funding the International Research Station, and will ensure its completion wherever its location. We would prefer that the International Research Station be hosted in Hainan, so that we may both ensure its safeguards and its scientific endeavors. The lack of control of the situation in Greece gives us pause in a European solution.

    The starvation of the people in a developing nation is not something that can be overlooked, and the Chinese people will offer our assistance.

    UN's Ebola mission set up its headquarters in Accra as it was far enough away from the affected countries, where there was logistical lockdown, but close enough the epicentre of the outbreak.

    Setting up our headquarter in Accra made Ghana the only open gateway to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone thus allowing the movement of thousands of Ebola responders and medical and essential supplies when they were most needed.

    As a result, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone now had the necessary response capabilities in place to efficiently test, treat and isolate Ebola patients.

    With regard to Spain, I suggest Ibiza on the Balearic Islands. Close to the southern coast of spain, where we expect refugees to be crossing, and easy to quarantine, and with a big enough port to manage logistics for deploying into outbreaks.

    i am in favor of this plan

    I will remind my friends and colleagues that the outbreak has now spread across three continents, and is on the doorstep of two others. We must move quickly to contain this global threat. La República Argentina will be voting in favor of the first resolution but are keen to listen to all sides of the debate on where the facility serves the global population.

    In other news, La República Argentina vote! 2 to help ease the suffering of the African people.

    As far as I know, everybody is in favor of building the research facility. The only question is where it will be built.

    Egypt for one votes that the WHO research station is built on the Balearic Islands in Spain.

    Iran getting infected is not good-I don't know if they'll want to cooperate with international requests on what to do. And I'm not sure if they even have the capability to seal up their borders. This could result in the disease's spread to the whole middle east, and they're not too far away from Africa.

    Is anyone here on good terms with Iran?

    Russia and China both have long standing relations with Iran.

    Argentina would like to publicly request that the other Western Hemisphere powers contact our diplomatic corps regarding the situation in Central America. Knowing what we've collectively got to work with in attempting to help the people of that beleaguered region should enable a coordinated response.

    As a scientist, I suggest that Iran be advised to close its borders.

    I know I advised against this for Spain, but I feel that other mechanisms for controlling the spread might not be effective in Iran, where access to healthcare experts might be limited.

    Iran is a very developed country.

    We should be more worried about Central America.

    Cuba is home to the some of the best doctors in the region and should be contacted for help.

    After some research, I've found that Iran's healthcare system is rather good.

    With this in mind, a border closing may not be necessary, although I do think some form of action does need to be taken.

    La República Argentina is willing to contact República de Cuba if that should prove necessary.

    With that said, do we know which Central American countries are infected? Are all of them infected?

    I believe each resolution stands on it's own and we vote for or against each resolution.

    edit: My diplomatic briefing makes this less clear upon inspection.

    Are the resolutions both funding requests?

    If they are both funding requests, we do have to choose only one to support. Political requests seem to be unlimited.
