 In 2024-Situation in Yemen

Topic: 2024-Situation in Yemen
Country: Australia
Delegate Name: Kaya Dragan

The Situation in Yemen sparks a well-concerned question: How far will this go? With violation of international law such as: unlawful killings, enforced disappearances, torture, and more, the death toll reaching over 375,000, and now foreign nations needing to intervene, this war could be considered as never-ending. Citizens of Yemen live in uninhabitable conditions, increased famine and hunger, and children being restricted from attending school. Australia recognizes the severity and acknowledges the necessary need for a concrete regional solution.

Australia recognizes the war’s long-term status, and wishes to help cease the aggression soon, although Australia is concerned on how the committee is going to address the Houthi rebel group in a manner in which they would cooperate. As we witness them being backed in military aid from foreign nations, we question how to condemn and address foreign entities, in result, restricting them from involving themselves in harming the Yemeni governmental system.

Australia supports anti-Houthi movements, with also supporting the coalition formed, but keeping a resolution to this war in mind, we must encourage regional solutions. This is why we call upon the Islamic Relief Worldwide, a non-governmental organization, to provide humanitarian aid while the Committee coordinates a discussion, using United Nations members and facilities, for all foreign nations to pull out of Yemen, and to allow the UNDP to support the Yemeni government to rebuild. Australia wants to safeguard the people in Yemen, to remove the possibility for death and harm. In doing so, we are focused to solve this issue as quickly as possible with all countries.
