Committee: Security Council Topic: End Syrian Civil War Country: Plurinational State of Bolivia Delegate: Fernanda Gómez Priego Greetings fellow delegates and honorable Chair on behalf of President Evo Morales and the people of this nation the delegation of the Plurinational State of Bolivia is pleased to participate with the Security Council in order to discuss the importance of Ending the Syrian Civil War. The Syrian Civil War is an armed conflict taking place in Syria.From the Arab Spring protests on 2011 to an armed conflict against the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s government.The Syrian government has refused to negotiate with the rebel groups, the armed conflict is being fought by several factions: the Syrian government and its various supporters, a loose alliance of Sunni Arab rebel groups, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),etc. This many factions receive substantial support from foreign actors, leading many to a proxy war by both regional and global powers. The President Evo Morales has reiterated our country’s support to Syria under the leadership of the President Bashar Al-Asaad in it’s armed conflict against rebel groups.This remark came during a meeting with Syrian ambassador to Venezuela Ghassan Abbas on the sidelines of the activities of the G77+China summit held recently in Bolivia with the participation of Syria. Bolivian Defense Minister congratulated Syria on President al-Assad’s winning the elections, he expressed Bolivia’s condemnation of all foreign attempts to interfere in Syria’s internal affairs.Ambassador Abbass stressed the importance if the relations between Syria and Bolivia. A UN commission of inquiry has evidence that all parties involved to the conflict have committed armed conflict crimes -including murder, torture, sexual rights abuse, enforced disappearances,etc- they have also been accused of using civilian suffering –such as blocking access to the food, water, and health services through sieges- as a method of armed conflict.The UN Security Council has demanded all parties to end the indiscriminate use of weapons in populated areas, but civilians keep being murdered in their thousands. Many have been murdered by barrel bombs dropped by government aircraft on gatherings in rebel-held areas – attacks which the UN says may constitute massacres. IS has also been accused by the UN of waging a campaign of terror, it has inflicted severe punishments on those who transgress or refuse to accept its rules. The UN Security Council has called for the implement of
the 2012 Geneva Communique, which envisages a transitional governing body with full executive powers “formed on the basis of mutual consent”. To end this armed conflict the solutions that the Delegation of Bolivia purposes are: ● Try to get to a pacific and mutual agreement between the government and the people of Syria. ● Open a multilateral channel of communication between the Syrian government and the rebel groups in order to begin peace talks. ● Get support from sympathizing countries in order to aid the Syrian government.
