1 Venezuela's Nuclear Power Plan?? NEVER on October 4th 2009, 21:16

Hello there delegates. As all of you can clearly see, USA has finally come up with it's final resolution topic, which will be against Venezuela's Nuclear Plan with Russia. For those who have no idea of what I'm talking about, Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez, and Russia's president Dmitry Medvedev have met recently, in order to close up an agreement to expand nuclear energy and military ties between both countries, in an effort to close ranks in opposition to the US. Yes, delegates, Venezuela wants nuclear energy! The President himself states that it's all for peaceful reasons, but come on, we all know how Hugo Chavez really is!

Anyway delegates, this is our final decision for our resolution. If any of you have doubts or concerns, you may as well ask any of the US representatives!

That's all.... Razz

2 Iran and Venezuela? on October 6th 2009, 13:39

This organization between Russia and Venezuela has gone too far. Venezuela has nuclear ambition along with Iran assisting them with more than 20,000 barrels of gasoline daily. There are resons to suspect that venezuela has been supplying Iran with uraniam which is under international sanctions for failing to halt its enrichment program. Under Chávez, Venezuela has closely collaborated with Iran on everything from energy and military projects to agriculture and education. ny assistance to Iran's nuclear program would violate UN Security Council Resolution 1737, which bans all states from supplying Iran any "items, materials, equipment, goods and technology" that could help its enrichment activities.

This nuclear power plan is resulting with other countries being afraid that it's goig to be used to create weapons. Chile has been part of peacekeeping operations and this nuclear power plan should not exist so there would be no future problems or concerns about it.

Indeed, delegate of Chile, no one really knows what Chavez is trying to do this time. Who knows what might really happen? Even though we have no idea of what is indeed going to happen, we shouldn't just sit and wait, we should act before anything worse happens. I urge all delegates to think thoroughly before even having the slightest idea of voting against this resolution. Would you rather live in the fear of a nuclear attack or live in peace?? It's your choice... Neutral

The nuclear deal between Venezuela and Russia was made for no other reasons, but peace and civillian use. Dispite Venezuela's oil, energy infrastructure in Venezuela is creaking and prone to blackouts and the best solution is a nuclear reactor.

The Delegation of the United States should take a step back before accusing the venezuelian president, Hugo Chavez, because we all know USA's nuclear past condems itself. We shall remeber it was not Venezuela who attacked the Japan in WW2 with two atomic bombs that killed thousand, destroyed cities, and cause diseases to spread, it was the USA. It wasn't Venezuela who invaded Iraq in 2003 stating the government had weapons of mass destruction (which was proven to be a lie), and ended up killing soilders and inocent civilions, it was the USA. And these are just two injust actions of the American's government out of a list of a million.

Indeed, delegate of Venezuela, USA is guilty of such charges, but the delegate must consider that these were all ppast presidents deciason, wrong ones, regretful ones, unforgettable ones. Bush made many decisons that weren't the best fit to the US and te rest of the world and for such reason, Obama apologizes and wishhes that the rest of the world learns from the past presidents mistakes. Concerning your nuclear alliance with Russia, the delegate understands the need for energy and electricity resources but also doesn't understands the need of offering Iran help in their nuclear resources. For years, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez cast himself as President Bush's arch enemy, repeatedly accusing the Bush administration of plotting to overthrow the Venezuelan government and to assassinate him. This was how Chávez justified his tightening alliances with Russia. So, when Chávez first announced his intention to acquire nuclear technology for civilian purposes in 2005, it was a way to challenge Bush creating fear of another peaceful nuclear program that could one day produce weapons and challenge the world in their plan of a peaceful nation

First, Bush is not representing the United States anymore therefore the Venezuelan government has no more ties with his person.
-
Iran has been helping Venezuela in the search for uranium inside the Venezuelan nation with the purpose of civilian use in regards of energy resources. There are no imports of uranium between Iran and Venezuela, and there is no such thing as a nuclear weapons plan in Venezuela. In fact, Chavez believes all countries should end any nuclear weapons program, but strongly agree that all countries, including the US, should have a sovereign right to establish peaceful nuclear energy programs.
US’ interpretation of this situation seems not to match the real purpose of Venezuelan economic ties with Russia and Iran, and the delegate is truly sorry for that. However the Venezuelan government won’t take a step back in development or in helping energy resources in the country because the American government is having unnecessary second thoughts.

Delegate of Venezuela, Israel has accused Venezuela of supplying Iran with uranium--allegations that Chávez dismisses--and although there is little evidence to support such charges now, the two states have developed an unsavory relationship. Indeed, any assistance to Iran's nuclear program would violate UN Security Council Resolution 1737, which bans all states from supplying Iran any "items, materials, equipment, goods and technology" that could abet its enrichment activities.Venezuelan trade with Iran has grown from approximately $1 million in 2004 to over $50 million in 2006. Chávez has personally helped Iran shore up diplomatic and economic ties throughout the region. Venezuela has also tried to secretly facilitate arms trades between Iran and Latin American countries,which could create a violation of legally-binding UN Security Council resolutions related to Iran's nuclear program. Also, Although Venezuela is a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has signed a safeguards agreement with the IAEA, Chávez has refused to sign the Additional Protocol, which would give the agency broader inspection powers and obligate Venezuela to provide "the location, operational status and the estimated annual production capacity of uranium mines." If Chávez is serious about developing a civilian nuclear power program, he should affirm his commitment to nonproliferation by implementing the IAEA's Additional Protocol and clarify his dealings with Iran. Venezuela does not currently mine its uranium, but recent collaboration with Iran has sparked rumors that Venezuela could mine uranium for Iran

Delegate, Venezuela is an ally of the Russian Federation, as well as many other nations in the worlds. If the delegate were to suspect of every ally of the People Republic of China, the Russia Federation, United States, England and France (the five counties recognized by the NPT) the delegate would end up suspecting of all nations in the world including Chile, itself.

And please delegate, the delegation of Venezuela asked for a concrete reason, not an irrelevant one.

The Delegation of Venezuela is fully aware of the SC resolution that bans any economic ties that could possibly supply the Islamic Republic of Iran with any product or material involving nuclear power. And because of this resolution the Delegation of Venezuela can assure the Delegation of the US that there is no relationship between Venezuela and Iran that could violate the resolution; in the other hand, the Islamic Republic of Iran has collaborated with the nuclear development in Venezuela, with the same purpose announced by Chavez in 2005 - civilian use of energy.

This generalize suspicion of every one is other wise known to psychiatrists as paranoia.
Russia has been notably irresponsible in its recent actions, such as the invasion of Georgia cutting relations with NACO, and threatening the West with nuclear retaliation.
Russia is allie of Iran, it is transfering nuclear technology to Iran, while both countries claim that this nuclear technology is for peacefull porposes it is well known that Iran wants to be the dominant military power in the middle east. They have long range missiles, and they want to develop nuclear war heads. In these programs, Iran has colaborated with North Korea, acknowledge to be the most psychopathyc rogue states in the world today. Iran's first step upon attaining nuclear weapons will be to bomb Israel, perhaps triggerin a nuclear 3rd World War. These psychopathyc states are Venezuela closest allies. By inserece we can conclude that Venezuela wants nuclear weapons as well. Venezuelas leader has revealed himselve to be mentaly unsteable enough to use nuclear weapons should he succed in obtaining them.

Despite Russia and Venezuela's economic ties, RUSSIA IS NOT VENEZUELA. THE DELEGATE SHOULD SAVE YOUR WORDS TO RUSSIA - AND TO THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN, SINCE VENEZUELA IS ALSO NOT IRAN!

The delegation of Venezuela sees no conection between Georgia and Venezuela's nuclear power development and the economic ties between Russia and Iran, are between the two nations.

Venezuela has not violated the NPT or the SC Resolution involving importation of nuclear facilities and tecnologies to Iran.

Delegate of Chile, you might take in consideration that opinios aren't fact, opinions are made of facts. The delegate's acusation towards Venezuela's socialist president is senseless and disrespectful. The connection the delegate made between the conflicts of Iran & Israel and Russia & Georgia are irrelevant to Venezuela's nuclear development, therefore the delegate's conclusion is irrelevant as well.

If Venezuela is serious about pursuing peaceful nuclear energy, however, it should underline its commitments by adopting an Additional Protocol (AP), joining the Convention on Nuclear Safety, the Vienna Convention on Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage, and the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material. Chile and Peru, which have research reactors, signed these and other treaties and have ratified an AP to their agreements with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Excuse me delegate, but before even thinking of accusing the US, take a step back and look at your own president. Chavéz is basically a communist that wants to make another Cuba out of Venezuela. It is a lie when people state that he is with the people and gives all to the people. He just wants to convince the Venezuelan population, through false propaganda, that the US is the enemy, when the real enemy, truthfully, is Chavéz himself. Chavéz wants to dictate everything, from what people think to what people eat. There is no liberty in Venezuela now, and this has nothing to do with the US, USA's former president George W Bush, or USA's current president Obama, as Chavéz insists.

So, delegate of Venezuela, think twice before even accusing the US

The Delegate sees no connection with what the delegate said and the
nuclear deal between Russia and Venezuela. Please don't make yourself
irrelevant.

First of all there is no such thing as communism, no nation has ever achieved perfect communism. And then, Chavez is a socialist and he was democratically elected more than once. Delegate should be careful not to mixture your opinion with your nation's. All the delegate has is teories, no prove, no evidence .... US' past condenms itselft as the Delegate of Venezuela said before, while Venezuela's dosen't. The Delegation is not saying Venezuela's past is perfect, because its not. Anyway, focus on the topic.

Delegates,
Please don't take the debate personally, be respectful!

Venezuela, just a clarification:
"People Republic of China, the Russia Federation, United States, England and France (the five counties recognized by the NPT)"
These are the permanent five members of the Security Council. Every country that has signed the NPT ( much much more than only these 5) are "recognized by the NPT" and have to adhere to all of its clauses, given that they have committed to the document. And by the way, it is UK not England, since the UK includes the northern islands and other parts as well.

To the USA,
Both of you seem to strictly condenm Venezuela's relationship with Iran. Still, can one of you please explain the American tie with Israel? Why are millions of dollars invested, might I say, given to them? Where is this money going to?

USA's relation with Israel is nothing more, nothing less, than a peaceful relationship. The main support for Israel has been foreign aid in which the congress monitors it closely. The US always supported the creation of a jewish homeland, and aids Israel economicaly. Unfortunately Israel doesn't have much support from many other countries and suffers disadvantadges being surrounded by many arab nations. Israel was never a threat to the surrounding nations but the contrary.Iran, on the other hand, is defying Security Council resolutions ordering it to suspend the enrichment of uranium. Also, although the IAEA inspections are open, Iran never informed the IAEA of a second a second enrichment plan which he was supposed to, violating the rules after the 2003 incident. But delegates, the delegate of the US thinks that we're getting off topic here.

First of all, yes, Venezuela is aware ... that's why it said it was aware in first place.

And second, just because the economic ties with Iran and Venezuela grew dosen't mean Venezuela wants nuclear weapons. The delegate of Venezuela dosen't even see the conection between Iran and Venezuela economic ties with Russia and Venezuela's nuclear power deal. As the delegate said "Venezuela does not currently mine its uranium", and Venezuela has no nuclear power yet, so the economic ties between the Islamic Republic and Venezuela have nothing to do with nuclear power.

Anyways, the Venezuelan government is palnning on mining its uranium with the help of Iran, but it have no intension to exports its uranium to the Islamic Republic.
