WELCOME LETTER FROM SECRETARY GENERAL

Honourable participants, 

It is an exceptional honour to serve you as the Secretary-General of FSMUN 2019. I am Yankı Göksoy. I have begun to attend MUNs just a year ago. Now I am writing down as a Secretary-General of this ultimately developed conference.

My enthusiasm and encourage about MUNs started at the my very first conference. I realized international politics and debating on a topic is my passion. 

This year, we will host and allocate you to 4 different committees and you have my promise, our committees are better than each other. Now I will define the committees with the introduction from United Nations. Our very first committee General Assembly First Committee ; Disarmament and International Security (GA-1 DISEC) , It considers all disarmament and worldwide security subjects inside the scope of the Charter or referring to the powers and functions of another organ of the United Nations; the overall principles of cooperation inside the maintenance of international peace and safety, as well as ideas governing disarmament and the law of armaments; promotion of cooperative preparations and measures aimed toward strengthening stability thru decrease stages of armaments. Our first special committee UN Women is independent non-governmental organization that supports the mission of UN Women through their public awareness initiatives about UN Women and global women’s issues, and fundraising efforts to support UN Women programmes worldwide.

Our second special committee United Nations Enviromental Programme is an agency of united nations, coordinates the organization’s environmental activities and assists developing countries in implementing environmentally sound policies.Our third and last special committee Joint Crisis Committee-Korean War: 

World War II divided Korea into a communist, northern half and American-occupied southern half divided at the 38th parallel. The Korean War began when North Korean communist army crossed the 38th parallel and invaded non-communist South Korea.

Both academic and organization team of FSMUN 2019 is really glad and feel exceptional to host you in Aria Claros Holiday Resort and serve you as these positions.

WELCOME LETTER FROM DIRECTOR GENERAL

 

It is my greatest honor to serve you as the Director-General and the spokesperson for organization team. I am İlke Bakır. I have never seen a team who is more enthusiastic than me during the organization process. I have always been in the academic part of MUNs and it is a really great experience in order to write down these letters as the Director-General.

I would like to mention my team. When I learned my duty, I did not except such a great success. I thought that we couldn't achieve this conference because we really have faced numerous unfortunate events and infelicitous separations. But after all of these kinds of problems their talents to overcome the problems impressed me a lot. 

Momentarily, MUNs are the platforms in order to achieve something that bigger than us. To see our generation while speaking in front of the crowd and redound them an academic experience is the only thing that I may boast myself. 

Ultimately, I would like to end my words with a quote from Woody Allen “There's nothing like the discovery of an unknown work by a great thinker to set the intellectual community atwitter and cause academics to dart about like those things one sees when looking at a drop of water under a microscope.”
