THE METAMORPHOSIS OF SILKWORMS [Archives]

Day 1 Session 3
PWSMUN 2015



After a filling lunch, the third session of the Security Council began by picking up where it had left off with the General Speakers’ List. This small but established committee had very thorough and serious discussions on the agenda: The human rights situation in Iraq and Syria. The Delegate of Syria wanted to prove her point so desperately that she felt inclined to bang her fists against the hard, mahogany table. Nonetheless, her point was proven and the delegates looked very impressed with the fist banging. Some of them tried to do the same, but sadly, they failed.
Refugee policies in the countries neighbouring Syria and Iraq were discussed at length in a moderated caucus, and many valid points were raised by the Delegates of Russia and China, who seemed to have an endless bank of knowledge at their disposal. The delegates behaved in a very diplomatic manner.

The Delegate of Iran accidentally said “Syran” and a point of personal privilege was raised by the Delegate of France to ask whether she said Syria, Iran or a combination of both. The President then proceeded to ask the Delegate of France whether he was happy or not with the answer the Delegate of Iran gave, to which he responded “not really, no” causing the entire committee to bubble with laughter.
The Delegate of Afghanistan very innocently asked an International Press member whether she had good handwriting so that she could write his chits for him because no one could understand his scribbles.
The Delegate of France seemed to be a perfectionist, even slightly arrogant, yet that only added to his charismatic and engaging way of debating. He commanded the attention of everyone in the room.
This committee was full of smart and quick thinkers. However sometimes metaphors can be taken too far. For example, in her speech, the Delegate of Iraq said that countries tend to evolve like the metamorphosis of a silkworm into a butterfly, leaving astounded expressions on every face in the room.
The delegates were working so enthusiastically on their working papers that it seemed they had forgotten there were two more days of the PWSMUN they were to attend. This committee lived up to everyone’s expectations, leaving the President very happy with today’s work.
