afp

ISLAMABAD: The NUML Model United Nations (NMUN) concluded on Monday after three days of intellectual brainstorming, interactive committee sessions and exchange of ideas with a very unique style of long luxurious kimonos from Japan, wired Cuban cigar-smoking faces with untrimmed and unkempt beards, haughty heads with kippah (head coverings), kosher foods and drinks of Israel, tall flaunting pyramids and fossilised mummies from Egypt, rustic and nonchalant cowboys from Chile, cuisines, beverages, cutlery, attires, decors, fauna, flora, climate and gibberish sounding verbal diplomatic exchanges from distant lands of the world.The last day of the NMUN included rigorous sessions of debates in five different mock committees of the NMUN: the Security Council (SC), Human Rights Council (HRC), and United Nations Development Fund for Women, United Nations Disarmament and International Security Committee, Social, Cultural and Humanitarian Committee.The delegates from each committee raised arguments on the issues ranging from world peace and conflict to human rights abuses, globalisation and global warming.The delegates in the simulated sessions of different committees were pitched into some rigorous debates and employed their diplomatic and debating skills to get their point across and presented their position papers on the issues including ‘Right of self-determination for Kashmiri populace’, ‘US-Iran nuclear rapprochement’, ‘Nuclearisation of South Asia’, ‘human rights issue in Pakistan and world response’ and ‘globalisation and its effects on the developing countries’.The closing ceremony was graced by deans, heads, directors, faculty members and delegates of the conference. Apart from the educational activities, stalls featuring cultural orientations of different countries were also set. The stall depiction included proper cultural orientation as well as the taste, music, national dresses and food. A drama festival, fusion night, certificate distribution ceremony and most-awaited dinner on the theme ‘masquerade’ were few of the delights that provided a mixed baggage of erudition and recreation to the students. Sarwat Rauf and Ashfaq Ahmed were the conference coordinators.An official, while talking to scribe, said “The purpose of the event was to hear, bear and share.”  The participating students were awarded in every field ranging from the best delegates to the best costume which was meant to provide students with a chance to argue and discuss the problems faced by the world today.
