Introduction to Committee and Topics:

As one of the six main organs of the United Nations, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) shoulders the primary duty of safeguarding international peace and security and serves as the center of global efforts to resolve disputes and prevent conflicts..

In spite of the armistice of the Korean War in 1953, a peace treaty has not been signed ever since. Two Koreas are divided along the 38th parallel, with conflict and détente in alternation. Facing changing international environment after the end of the Cold War, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea started to develop nuclear weapon while the Republic of Korea staged military exercises with the United States of America. The situation on the Korean Peninsula has become a primary destabilizing factor in North-East Asia as well as a major concern for international community and the UNSC.

We hope that delegates can contribute their wisdom and creativity to this conference, and not only review the lessons from past experiences but also consider the competing interests of all stakeholders. Should we be able to achieve de-nuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and establish a lasting peace regime, the current vicious cycle can be broken and a more peaceful North-East Asia as well as a more peaceful world will dawn.
