 In 2024-Situation in Burkina Faso

Topic: 2024-Situation in Burkina Faso
Country: Brazil (UNSC)
Delegate Name: Alanood Btoush

Honorable Chairs, Esteemed delegates,

Burkina Faso is confronting an uncertain future. The country faces a difficult security situation
marked by an increase in terrorist attacks, intercommunal violence, and civilian displacement.
The humanitarian situation in Burkina Faso is also severe, with millions of people needing aid.
The coup came after months of protests against President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré’s
government, which was accused of failing to solve the country’s security and economic issues.
The military has since taken control of the administration, but the circumstances remain
unstable. With 2 million displaced, 38,000 refugees, astonishing amounts of health issues, and
countless other inhumane predicaments the situation must be handled immediately.
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has been actively involved in resolving the
situation in Burkina Faso. The Council has met multiple times to discuss the country’s dilemma,
and it has made several comments expressing concern about the deteriorating security and
humanitarian conditions. Furthermore, the UN Security Council has urged all parties involved in
the Burkina Faso conflict to respect international humanitarian law and protect civilians,
particularly women and children, from violence and abuse. In addition, it has asked the
international community to provide humanitarian aid to Burkina Faso’s people, who are in
desperate need.

Brazil expresses profound worry about the current situation in Burkina Faso. The country is in
the midst of a complex crisis defined by political instability, armed conflict, and humanitarian
concerns. As a member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Brazil believes that
resolving the fundamental root causes of the crisis and achieving peace, stability, and
development in Burkina Faso would need a comprehensive and coordinated effort by all parties
willing to assist. Countries must encourage one another to support the relief efforts for Burkina
Faso because the humanitarian aspect of the whole situation should be the main focus. At the
end, each country fights for their own wellbeing and safety, and to ensure that governments
must act to protect others to protect their own.

Brazil recognizes the Burkina Faso government’s attempts to address the country’s problems.
However, Brazil believes that more has to be done to address the root causes of the issue, such
as poverty, inequality, and marginalization. Brazil urges all parties to the conflict to uphold
international humanitarian law and protect civilians, particularly women and children, from
violence and abuse.

Brazil is fully prepared to take charge, and provide humanitarian assistance to the people of
Burkina Faso. Brazil aims to promote peace, overall stability and much needed growth in the
nation. Brazil stands ready to provide a viable solution, calling upon other parties to create

reform and development. Hence, Brazil’s diplomatic ties with Burkina Faso since the 1960’s can
have a negative implication on Brazil’s stability of alliances and overall economic status, and
relations with the wider region.
Brazil is open and is looking forward to collaborating with other delegates to initiate change,
revolution and development in the situation. Brazil is looking forward to fruitful debates and the
wealthy contribution this council will create.
