Delegates of the Security Council, 

On behalf of my chairs and myself, I would like to welcome you to the 17thannual Amman Model United Nations conference and more specifically into the Security Council.


With nations striving for development, and conflict arising in all corners of the world, peace and security are considered nothing but insignificant solutions for the devastation faced by the people of our society. But with the birth of new leaders and the newfound political courage, the protection of civilians should be a priority amidst the conflict, struggle for power, and violence surrounding our nations, and that is the mindset I am expecting from the delegates of the Security Council.


And for that reason, in November of 2019, the delegates of the AMMUN Security Council will be discussing pressing issues the people of this world fall victim to, as debate during the upcoming conference will revolve around different, yet equally pressing issues that threaten the security of the world: The Question of Foreign Manipulation of Domestic Political Institutions and Affairs, The Issue of Militarization in the Arctic, and The Situation in the Central African Republic.


Being the heart of the United Nations, the Security Council in AMMUN has managed to create a reputation for itself for being one the most productive, enjoyable and educational forums in AMMUN, setting the expectations higher and higher every year. During the upcoming conference I hope to continue this reputation and not only meet the high expectations set by last year’s Security Council, but I hope to surpass it, making this conference the best one yet. However, in order to accomplish that, I encourage all delegates to come as prepared as possible in order to keep up with the heated debates of the Security Council. The AMMUN Rules of Procedure are as important as the debate itself, therefore I expect all delegates to be aware of them and use them appropriately during debate. I also ask for all delegates to read the provided research reports on the topics at hand and come prepared with the necessary research to support your political views. Finally, to ensure successful debate, I urge you to come with your passion and willingness to participate and collaborate with other delegates to create resolutions that have the potential to change the world. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or inquiries about the conference or the topics. 


I would like to congratulate you all for being selected as members of AMMUN XVIII’s Security Council. I look forward to meeting you all.


I wish you all the best of luck, 



Noura Matalka
