[Current Event: India] Jammu and Kashmir
Coming from 1947, the nation of India has gained its independence from a Britain rule leaving it already with political and regional divisions. In October 1947, the nation of India implemented a partition leaving it with East, West Pakistan and India. Till today the state of Jammu and Kashmir remain unstable due to the lack of Referendum on whether it is under a Pakistani region or a Hindu nation. Throughout the decades, several conflicts, ceasefires and UNSC resoltions have been submitted to resolve this prolonging issue. Three dominant wars have been established regardless of the minor conflicts and disputes, 1947-1949, 1965 and 1971. Furthermore, this prolonging issue remains undecided, coming from the line of control, to the Simla agreement.

The Opening ceremony
he second annual MUN conference embraced its second opening ceremony by presenting the current theme: Rising Tides. The theme is derived the concept that tides can cause destruction by their power and assaulting effect, but they can also have benefits in how they carry things ashore and enhance the oceanic cycle. This applies to MUN in terms of the issues discussed, especially appropriate to this year, where many changes have taken place. The executive members of the MUN conference like Ziad Soliman, General Assembly (top, right) and Ibrahim el Kazaz, Head of Academic Committee (middle), and Nour Sadek, President of International Court of Justice (top, left end). Kazaz’s speech was of particular attention because he addressed the delegates and the new comers as the future tools to peace and security and the concept of dreaming big. After the opening speeches have come to end, the delegates wrapped up the ceremony by giving a cordial applause.
