A Letter From Secretary-General
Distinguished Delegates, Advisors, and Esteemed Guests, I am truly honored to welcome you on behalf of the Secretariat to the first iteration of the international FMV Işık Model United Nations Conference (IMUN) which will take place from:
June 9th to June 12th, 2022.
We live in a turbulent world where the world constantly changes. These changes, even though sometimes for the better, can result in horrible situations. An example of this is currently happening in Afghanistan where the terrorist organization Taliban has taken over the country and is now in power. The terror of the Taliban has affected countless people in and out of Afghanistan. Women are stripped from their basic human rights and are seen as property. Many children have to hide in their houses in fear of Taliban attacks. The cruel Sharia Law is declared the rule of the land. The worst part is that the global community is yet to take major action against this atrocity It aches me intensely to think that whilst I appreciate the benefits of quality education, a caring family, and a prosperous country, there are people of the same age with us fighting for their daily lives without realizing what the future holds for them. We, young people, must refuse to accept the status quo and raise our voice in the long-standing fight not only for a free Afghanistan but for a free world. A world without injustices, where everyone is treated equally and fairly. That, I reckon, is why the United Nations concept was introduced in the first place.
In its second year, FMV Işık MUN aims to remain close to its core principle of providing a forum whereby, in a competent and collaborative setting, its participants and every person involved in its creation can gain intellectual and personal growth.
With eight international bodies in service, FMV Işık MUN strives to resolve a multitude of global issues, from economic to humanitarian, and serve the needs of both newcomers to veterans within the institution’s scope.
My contributions alone as Secretary-General cannot make up the IMUN as it stands today. I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to those who have accompanied IMUN this year and who will accompany IMUN in the years ahead. The Secretariats, the Advisors, and most importantly, the Delegates are the people who have made it possible for IMUN to carry on its mission.
As my final remarks, I encourage those who are still reluctant to embark on this journey with us. Let your passion be reflected in your voice, your resolution, and your companionship
Deniz Kavak – Secretary General
