 In Autonomous Weapon Systems

Country: Tunisia
Delegate Name: Pranav Mudhas

As we advance into the 21st century, the technological improvements of weapons have advanced beyond control. As a result of all these improvements, many countries have been debating the initiation of autonomous weapons systems into the military. Autonomous weapon systems are currently defined as weapons that are capable of operating without direct human output or control, particularly in the terms of the actual use of force. An autonomous weapon system is only capable of doing exactly what it is told to do without any chain of logic making it a destructive force without remorse or compassion. DISEC must properly define autonomous systems clearly and precisely to a point, in order to achieve an agreement between countries to limit the death of innocent civilians.

As a country with autonomous weapon systems, Tunisia recognizes the need for these systems as defensive measures against hostile invaders. Tunisia also sees the need for other countries to have the same defensive measures given they do not abuse the moral conduct that would be integrated with autonomous weapons systems.

Tunisia urges The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) to create a stable and acceptable definition for autonomous weapons systems in order to create an agreeable agreement between the countries that are in possession of them. Tunisia believes the only way to implement disarmament measures is through multilateralism within the framework of the United Nations adding that international cooperation is a vital role in order to agree upon the fate of autonomous weapons systems.
