Honorable Chairs, fellow delegates, and members of the United Nations,the delegate of Italy strongly recommends SC to discuss upon the proper measures tofacilitate the influx of Syrian refugees in European society regarding the Agenda on How toaccommodate and/or promote integration of Syrian refugees in European societies.Refugees of the Syrian Civil War or Syrian refugees are citizens and permanent residents ofSyrian Republic, who have fled from their country since the broken of the Syrian Civil Warin 2011 and have sought asylum in other parts of the world. More than 4.5 million peoplehave fled Syria since the start of the conflict, most of them women and children.
About 10%of Syrian refugees have sought safety in Europe, sowing political divisions as countries argueover sharing the burden.Toward this situation, Italy has long stated amicable position toward the accommodation ofSyrian refugees. Italy has long been a destination for those hoping to reach European shoresbecause of its proximity to North Africa. In 2015 when Chancellor Merkel called for a quotasystem to allow the distribution of refugees, in which Italy along with Greece and Spainvoted, though many other European countries stated adverse opinion. Recently, more than10,000 migrants have been brought to the Italy’s shores.On the other hand, Italy now reaches the saturation point of the ruinous influx of Syrianrefugees. Italy is considering action to force the hands of nations refusing to takeredistributed migrants. Even the idea of blocking humanitarian ships with foreign flags fromreturning to Italian ports has been discussed.
Almost all the 200,000 beds for asylum seekersin government reception centers are already full.It is sure that Italy is playing its part in receiving those rescued and providing asylum to thosein need of protection. But this cannot be an Italian problem alone. It is a matter ofinternational concern.
Therefore, Italy is asking for a concrete contribution from theEuropeans and sharing burden with other European societies.Honorable Chairs, fellow delegates, and members of the United Nations,The Delegate of Italy strongly recommends SC to discuss upon measures internationalcountermeasures to prevent IS from their continuous brutality, regarding the agenda aboutSeeking Ways to Restore Order in the Formerly IS-Controlled Region and to Prevent theReconstruction of Such Terrorist Groups.Islamic terrorism is defined as set of acts or campaign committed by groups or individualswho profess Islamic or Islamist motivations or goals.
Islamic terrorists justify their violenttactics through the interpretation of Quran and Hadith according to their own goals andintentionsThe center of the Islamic State(IS) territory was in Iraq and Syria, and they also control landin Yemen, Afghanistan, Libya, Nigeria, Egypt, and Somalia. At its peak, over 10 millionpeople were living in territory under IS control. But the group’s momentum has slowed overthe past year, and it has now lost its hold on nearly half of those locations. Thus strategy toreconstruct these formerly controlled region needs to be established.
Such a strategy must bewide-ranging, focusing on the stabilization and reconstruction of the decimated territory thegroup currently controls. It must look well beyond military considerations, and concentrateon governance, economics, infrastructure, and social concerns, and financial aid. On theother hand, International communities are reluctant to pay for Post-Islamic Statereconstruction.
Italy has been spared mass terror attacks in recent years. However, Italy recently was alsothreatened by the Is, and fear of terrorism grew throughout the country. Therefore, Italybelieves organizations should no longer be formed anymore to deal with such terrorism.Therefore, Italy strongly consents that international measures should be set up to helpcountries rebuild and when policies are implemented, Italy is willing to actively participatepolitically and financially.
