Topic: Proliferation of Ballistic Missiles
The UN has continually discussed the positions of ballistic missiles as they continue to develop to deliver mass destruction and accuracy through their speed and projectile motion. International involvement and attention are prime reasons why ballistic missiles have officially been seen as a problematic topic. Currently, the countries of France, China, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States possess ballistic missiles capable of exceeding ranges of 1,000 kilometers. Many other countries also continue to test ballistic missiles in an attempt to develop a more successful destructive arm in the precaution of these 9 powerful nations. China and Russia are the only two states not in a commitment or allyship with the United States that have a proven capability to strike the United States. Ballistic missiles may have the ability to destroy targets at ease with their projectile motion but only recently have they been used in warfare, including the Iran-Iraq War, the Afghan Civil War, the war in Yemen, and the 1991 Persian Gulf War. With the technological advancements through time, precautions have been developed to combat these destructive weapons, but unfortunately doesn’t decrease the number of ballistic missiles being produced in which 31 countries are producing and testing.
Turkiye currently has developed a short-range ballistic missile capable of traveling precisely 561 km away after our development of a missile capable of traveling more than 150 km. Our demonstration in late October of this year showcased our technological advancements as well as our ability to acquire such weaponry. Many organizations near our region and even in our region have taken much into account the use of ballistic missiles used in attacks against countries, such as ISIS attacking Syria.
Turkiye disagrees with the increased production of ballistic missiles. Ballistic missiles have only been seen as ineffective with larger nations such as the United States as they continue to proceed with precautions regarding ballistic missiles. Ballistic missiles seem as destructive power but with measured precautions could potentially be used as a way for nations to destroy organizations with negative thoughts and actions that would cause the destruction of human life. Turkiye would like to organize with the Russian Federation, The United States, and North Korea to begin experimenting to develop a ballistic missile with the intent for landscaping, economic, and entertainment purposes which would only be accompanied by the governments of each nation.
