In session three, the delegate of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the delegate of Germany were having a debate on working papers. And there were two working papers that have been brought up into discussion.
Working Paper 1.1 was led by Germany, Russian Federation and Venezuela, covering aspects of cyber security, education, and the reduction of fund generation of VNSAs. The Working Paper 1.1 also suggests measurement against the threat that NGOs and MNCs are posing. Another focus that has been set is stopping illegal weapon trade through the PSSM program, which was first successfully implemented in member states of the African Union and can now be expanded to the international community.
Working Paper 1.2 was generated, among others, by the delegation of Mali, Thailand, and the United States of America. The comprehensive working paper incorporated a highly controversial reverse burden of proof approach with respect to the member states’ sponsorship of VNSAs. That is, presuming that a nation is guilty of such acts until it has provided sufficient proof of its innocence. Furthermore, the working paper also stresses that all member states shall align themselves with the act of military rationalization and that a database network of information sharing regarding the identification of VNSAs should be established.
