After two days of debates, countries have started to produce their draft resolutions. The session started with a total of four working papers, from one side, USA, UK, Germany and Turkey where on the road of finishing its draft resolution; On the same pace was the working paper of Middle East states, lead by Jordan, UAE and Lebanon. On the other side, new propositions surged, Hungary and Slovakia surprised the delegations with the announcement of their own working paper and an angry Croatia and Netherlands declared they were also preparing their own draft work.
The most distinguished debates proposed were fear of terrorism and the responsabilities of countries dealing with refugees. Greece asked for help saying "Every country should cooperate and make an effort, as our country is overwhealmed". On the same line France, felt dissapointed with nations refusing to accept refugees, arguing that " We have not closed our borders, neither taken their money, even though we have suffered from several attacks, therefore there is no excuse for central and eastern European countries to not accept refugees". An offended Hungary in response reminded, they had to declare state of emergency due to the refugee influx they have been suffering. In addition to this Lebanon mentioned the fact that "Some countries haven't signed the 1951", so therfore they believe they don't have the obligation to help refuges; A coment which Austria called "selfish" and which Pakistan used to highlight that the USA "In 2015 was asked by ACNUR to host 7 000 and only accepted 1600" and accused them of suffering islamophobia. UAE remained in cooperative terms and gave his hand over to delegations to join their working papers, stating that nations should work as a global community to tackle the problem.
Along the session, positions have been changing, tensions have been arousing and conflicts have surged. A fierce Pakistan announced its refusal to work with the USA, "As we found out today, Dondald Trump, is nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, which USA is proud of, we would like to remind all delegations, especially Isalmic ones, that Donald trump is an islamophobic, and USA a country that keeps bombing Pakistan". Due to this, Pakistan has tried to create a coalition with Afganistan, though apparently the agreement failed. As a consequence, the closing borders issue came about, some countries positioned themselves in the same view as Serbia, who believes "closing borders isn't going to solve security problems" and on the other hand countries such as Hungary stated that closing borders "It is a way to protect our integrity, sovereignity and security". Lebanon replied to this debate with deception saying " we are fed up, we have 2 million refugees and all nations keep throwing roses to themselves, saying to be an example, and to be healing their suffering, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan or Egypt are a real example of suffering", Egypt added to this that European countries were "using terrorism as an excuse". Austria inspired by the declarations, revived and asked Slovakia why weren't they able to have some empathy towards refugees, if 20 years ago they had been receiving help from Austria with a similar situation; The reply given by Slovakia was basicly that the consequences of refugees had reached to a point in which crime was increasing and so mafias, and added that refugees do not adapt easily.
During a quick non-moderated caucas, hard accusations were thrown to different nations. Countries such as Saudi Arabia and Denmark, have been accused by the International Amnisty of violating human rights. This declaration alarmed Denmark, who defended themselved by remebering they are the third country in Europe hosting most refugees, and stated that they won't sponsor any resolution as " we prefer having our own policies and decision making". Furthemore, The Holy See threw accusations to all nations, they believe rules must be reconsidered as states as themselves and Palestine should have the right to vote. "We recognize Palestine since 1982, and we support them as a nation, no one is brave enough to talk about this", commented Pope Francis. In Adition, The European Union said to be disappointed with the US,UK,Germany and Turkey draft resolution, and confessed that they "won't vote for their plan, because they will send back refugees to their country of origin once the conflict has finished".
What most countries agreed was on the consequences that will occur if no agreement to solve the problem is reached. As Palestine said " If we do not solve this crisis, a domino effect will occur, in which an Influx of refugees in countries such as Jordan, will lead to closing borders, strong disputes and consequently a Middle East war will surge". This reminded delegations, the situation in which things where, and a non-moderated caucus began so working papers could be finished. The real conflict came at this point, while the US, UK, Germany and Turkish coalition were merging its paper with UAE's coalition, Croatia and Netherlands began talks between them, as they felt " US is just paying in order to not recieve refugees, and isn't listening to alternatives"; and with the debating, came the recruitment of nations. Netherlands proclaimed that "we will not do any kind of agreement with US nor UK, we are very offended, once you agree to be a sponsor to their draft resolution, they stop listening you". In addition to this they added that "they seem to not understand, that if there's a certain space in a box, you can put more people inside it, no matter how much money you give". Hungary and Slovakia decided to move towards this new coalition, as they felt they had more similar desires and "our demands are being listened and included".
The rumour of an alternative spreaded, and Pakistan with Syria,China and Afganistan added themselves up to the list of posible sponsors of the Netherland and Croatian plan. When the news came to the UK, US and Germany, they fought untill the end to reach an agreement with the nations they had lost to this new coalition, Germany approached Hungary , to convince them to return to their proposition as they "would give Hungary economic aid". When Austria was driven into this new coalition, immediatly appeared Germany and the UK to regain its sponsoring, by explaining Austria that "we have been asking for opinons, we don't have time to talk to everybody, it's a mistake, we should have gone and talk to those countries", which apparently convinced Austria, who publicly said they weren't supporting Croatia. The huge problem was when the US and Croatia, and UK and Netherland had a talk. Croatia thanked the US for finally going to speak to them, and explained its reason for creating a new draft resolution, which was that the US hasn't shown any interest in negociating with balkan countries. US answered "you are weak and small countries, we have more supports, we are merging papers with the UAE". This created the spark to make Croatia burn out, they replied "we will not colaborate with you, we are increasing in sponsors". On the other side UK and Netherland's talks didn't go well either. Netherlands stood up strong on its position, and maintained they felt too offended and forgotten, and that no solution could be done, they will be looking for supports for their own work.
Tomorrow, is the last session of the UNHCR, with two draft resolutions on the table, and no agreements on merging papers have been made; On one side we have a merged resolution between US, UK, Germany, Turkey, UAE and Lebanon , and on the other side we have a new draft resolution sponsored by Netherlands and Croatia. Many nations haven't spoken yet, and others are still deciding where to position, which makes the situation unclear. The UNHCR has now become a competition to gain the most sponsors and be the working group which has its resolution chosen to be passed. We will have to wait until tomorrow to find out if any agreements are made and a solution to solve the actual refugee crisis is reached.
