Agenda items: The Post-War Situation in Afghanistan and the Insurance of Peace and Stability in the Region

Year: 1990

USG and President Chair: Mohammad Ruzain Bin Ismail

Study Guide: Coming Soon

Description:

The year is 1990. Afghanistan has been at war for a very long time. It was at first invaded by the Soviets and then the unstable situation turned into a war in which the Americans supported one side and the Soviets the other. Until the Soviets decided to withdraw from the country, the war did not seem to be even close to ending. However, following the withdrawal of the Soviets from Afghanistan, foreign interference especially with intelligence agencies seems to have increased. The number of foreign soldiers is decreasing in Afghanistan day by day; however, because of the instability of the region, foreign intelligence has become very important. The intelligence agencies of different nations aim to gain as much information as possible upon what is actually going on on the ground in Afghanistan. They are also always ready to report any suspicious activity to their homeland. In case there will be an important update in Afghanistan, the armies that are withdrawing might need to come back. However, the primary goal must be to stabilize the region and ensure peace and security. But the problem is that the interpretation of "peace and stability" varies from country to country. Therefore, the representatives of intelligence agencies need to negotiate with other representatives and decide upon the future of Afghanistan.

Now, it is up to the Representatives of Intelligence Agencies to decide upon what they are going to do: Follow the path of history or draw a path of their own. The performance of the representatives will shape the flow of the committee, and the BHMUN'20 Team will shape their crises in accordance with the flow.
