New Delhi, Oct 4 (UNI) About 110 'young diplomats' representing as many countries have converged here to participate in a conference to discuss and debate solutions to several political, social, environmental and economical issues that threaten the world.
In a mock enactment of the UN General Assembly, the 'diplomats' from such countries as Indonesia, Bahrain, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka and India passed resolutions, offering unique solutions to problems troubling the world.
''The young leaders stepped into the shoes of real life diplomats and took on the role of Secretary General, President and Vice President of Security Council, ECOSOC, Human Rights Commission, Environment Commission and various Committees of General Assembly,'' said an official spokesman.
The conference, 'Indian Model United Nations Conference' (INMUN), is an attempt at training the young leaders to take the path of dialogue to resolve conflicts instead of choosing violent means, he said.
It also replicated the working of the various bodies of the United Nations. ''A lot of learning took place as we deliberated, issues of global concerns like real life international diplomats,''said Gunjan Chawala, the Secretary General of the INMUN Conference.
It was organised by the Ryan International Group of Institutions.
Group Chairman Augustine F. Pinto said INMUN aims to provide the senior students from across the world, the opportunity to comprehend the dynamics of international diplomacy.
