Even as the session opened, the delegates of IMO and HRC were in for a shock – they had a joint session, where they would debate on the crisis mentioned above. It was a dilemma among the delegates because of the abrupt change of procedure. Russia, China, United Kingdom, U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey fell into this stimulus.
The session commenced with a delegate raising a motion to conduct a special speakers list for the time being 90 seconds for each speaker. The way this particular committee worked was that there were blocs with two members each from both the committees with the exception of a few delegates who did not have a member nation in the following committee.
At first, the delegates were thrown off-balance by this sudden motion of a crisis, but were soon in a verbal furor; trying to abide by its country’s policies and reach a conclusion at the same time.
