Historical United Nations Security Council (HUNSC)

United Nations Security Council is one of the six main organs of the United Nations (UN) established by the UN Charter. The Security Council is created to maintain international peace and security, and it is equipped with special powers. The Security Council has 15 members, 5 of them being permanent members which have the right of veto. The Security Council’s resolutions have a binding nature that obliges the Member States to comply. In order to settle a dispute by peaceful means, the Council may recommend terms and methods of settlement, and ultimately it can impose sanctions and authorize the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security.

In 28th of January, 1996, Greece has landed their special forces on a islet at the night time. It didn’t seen as a huge military crisis at the first time but the Prime Minister of the Turkey at that moment, Tansu Çiller was clear: “ That flag will be lowered, that soldiers will be gone.” After that moment, Turkey was not willing to give a single piece of rock. The fighters were patrolling over Kardak islets non-stop. Turkey played smart and took back the Kardak islets with a well-planned operation. In this Historical Security Council committee, the participants will have the chance to debate and decide about crucial acts upon this crisis that could cause a major international problem in Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea.
