Sectarian conflicts occur when a group feels that another is attacking their identity. Sectarian conflicts not only result in loss of life and displacement but also cause instability among all nations. The UN has used diplomacy to resolve sectarian conflicts in the past. In 1991 the UN successfully ended the Gulf War in Iraq by sending in people who were there to make a truce. The United Nations should be actively sending peace negotiators to places where there are sectarian conflicts.
The United Kingdom is in favor of international actions to prevent and resolve sectarian conflicts. During the late 1900s, the UK was going through a sectarian conflict between the Protestants and Roman Catholics. The UK made the Good Friday treaty which ended the conflict. The UK is one of the founding members of the UN Security Council where we support peace among all nations. We have always fought for peace internationally when it comes to sectarian conflicts.
We encourage the UN to increase its efforts in maintaining peace in places with sectarian conflicts. The UK recommends a major increase in funds used for negotiating an end to sectarian conflicts. The UK is willing to use its resources in order to help with the end of sectarian conflicts.
