Security Council

Under the UN Charter, the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. Under the Charter, all Member States are obligated to comply with Council decisions.

The Security Council takes the lead in determining the existence of a threat to the peace or act of aggression. It calls upon the parties to a dispute to settle it by peaceful means and recommends methods of adjustment or terms of settlement. In some cases, the Security Council can resort to imposing sanctions or even authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.

Honorable delegates of the Security Council!

Words fail to describe how grateful I am for the opportunity to meet the most experienced delegates from all over the world and to be your Vice-President for this long-awaited week in April. 

My name is Aleksandra, I am MGIMO junior majoring in International Journalism. Model UN took my heart four years ago, and since then I became a dedicated MUNer. My most rewarding academic experiences are closely connected with the MUNs I have participated in and organized while in Moscow, New York and Tbilisi. Now, I feel thrilled and honored to invite you to my hometown and join you at the best Russian MUN. 

Each year we are putting our souls into organizing the conference that is annually conducted in all six languages of the UN. The memories you will share at C-MIMUN with more than 700 delegates from all the world are lasting forever. Then let us be the young leaders of today, reinforcing our deep commitment to our common passion!

Cannot wait to meet you in Moscow.

Yours sincerely,

Aleksandra Grishina

 

Honorable delegates,

It's an enormous pleasure for me to welcome you at C-MIMUN 2018! 

Maintaining peace and security in the world, including space, is a problem of paramount importance nowadays, and that is why the designated agenda is a very important issue for discussion. The world is developing rapidly, and peaceful existence and stability in this matter is nearly impossible to achieve. 

Despite the success of the UN in this field, it is high time you, distinguished delegates, worked out certain solutions and a comprehensive plan of action in order to prevent the arms race in outer space. 

We can resolve this problem only by means of international cooperation and active opposition to this threat by all the Member States. 

On behalf of the Expert of the Security Council, I wish you to have a breath-taking conference, to show your concern and intelligence, to find the answers to the most important questions on our agenda. May the force be with you!

Yours sincerely, 

Security Council Expert
