USG: Eralp Kumbasar
Study Guide: Coming Soon
     The Security Council is the highest committee of the UN. It consists of fifteen members, five permanent members(P5), and ten changing. The Security Council deals with the most serious topic of the UN that requires immediate actions and decisions to be taken.
     It's 1990, the Security Council will gather due to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The Saddam Hussein regime has taken an aggressive step in international relations, and this step taken requires an immediate response. The invasion of Kuwait was easy for the Iraqi forces due to the small army of Kuwait that is relatively weaker. The position of the Middle Eastern Countries and the P5 is critical. While some of these countries support the Saddam Hussein regime, some oppose it. But what the world awaits is an explanation of the position of the Security Council regarding the issue. Therefore the Security Council, with all its members, needs to decide upon what to do in the so-called "Gulf War".
     Now, it is up to the delegates to decide upon what they are going to do, follow the path of history, or draw a path of their own. The delegates' performance will shape the flow of the committee, and the BHMUN'20 Team will shape their crises in accordance with the flow.
