Disarmament and International Security Committee, abbreviated as DISEC, is the first committee of the United Nations General Assembly. General Assembly is one of the six main bodies of the United Nations and in its sessions, each member state of the UN has a right of representation which creates an open atmosphere for the debate of diverse issues varying from the status of the Non-Proliferation Treaty to gender equality.
The First Committee: DISEC, deals with the armament and international security issues which have troubled or are to trouble the international agenda and is working in collaboration with United Nations Disarmament Commission and the Geneva-based Conference on Disarmament to maintain full sustainability and peace among the member states along with the communities. First Committee sustains its missions in various regions for the precise provision of security, welfare, peace consolidation, and unilateral disarmament agreements. DISEC submits various documents and reports focusing on the establishment of disarmament and promotion of global security to the United Nations Security Council for its approval along with numerous resolutions.
In our conference, DISEC will study promoting and supporting a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict in the Kashmir Region. Since its beginning in 1947, this border dispute has led to many casualties on the combatant sides, as well the local people of Kashmir. Although the UN has been working on the issue since its very beginning in 1947, today, the dispute can be best described as a knot. Having witnessed this year that it is still possible to encounter full-scale international wars; it is time to revisit this old knot and facilitate the power of diplomacy to untie it.
