Esteemed member states,
The Central Bailtemmic Republic, like many other nations, is gravely concerned by the situation in Doge Land.
In particular, several states have initiated unilateral, uncoordinated acts of military support for Doge Land. These actions have no legal standing in international law and show a blatant disregard for existing avenues of diplomacy, mediation, and conflict resolution.
This august Forum has already begun processes designed to keep rogue international actors in check with the adoption of Resolution 15 (2022). It is deeply saddening to see members of this Assembly disregard that ongoing process and instead resort to unilateral military aid.
It is deeply irresponsible for individual member states to use military force outside of their territory, regardless of their intentions, without careful consideration and deliberation through the World Forum. The Charter of the World Forum lays outs its goals clearly: to ‘maintain peace, order, and stability,’ to ‘facilitate the development of cordial relations,’ and to ‘create an era of peace and prosperity.’ Reckless interventionism is directly opposed to all of these aims.
Therefore, the Central Bailtemmic Republic urges the adoption of the following standard resolution that condemns these reckless actors among us. If we are to move forward, we must move forward as one.
RES 16 (2022)
Assembly of the World Forum
3 October 2022
Section A — Standard Measure(s) Adopted
For foreign nations conducting military operations within the territory of Doge Land, whether on land, by sea, or in the air, the standard measures adopted shall be those listed in resolution 1d, section F, clause 2, subclauses (a) through (h).
For foreign nations providing indirect military aid to Doge Land, including but not limited to providing arms, ammunition, training, and other wartime supplies, the standard measures adopted shall be those listed in resolution 1d, section F, clause 2, subclauses (a) through (f).
Section B — Explanation of Necessity and Proportionality
Direct military intervention in the conflict, or supplying weapons, ammunition, training, or other military assistance, without any international plan for conflict resolution does nothing but aggravate the conflict and increase the risks posed to the lives of civilians and the prospects of post-war recovery.
No motions have been proposed on the floor of the World Forum Assembly to authorize the use of force in Doge Land. The unilateral actions taken thus far reflect an active decision to intervene and deliberately avoid consultation with the World Forum as a whole. This Assembly can not and will not allow such actions to escape its notice.
The measures established in this resolution are suitable to discouraging military intervention in Doge Land in violation of international law. The adoption of formal complaints and light sanctions will serve as a deterrent against continued and/or increased intervention. For cases of direct military intervention, referral to the International Court will allow a deliberative judicial body to make a final determination on the legality of intervention that bypasses the World Forum.
The measures established in this resolution are appropriate to discouraging military intervention in Doge Land in violation of international law. The standard measures adopted are different in cases of direct military intervention and indirect military support in order to remain proportionate. Furthermore, standard measures up to light sanctions or the calling of the International Court are of much less potential harm than the risks of uncoordinated and reckless intervention in Doge Land and the potential to prolong and exacerbate the conflict.
Section C — Implementation
The World Forum hereby condemns the decisions of individual state actors, made without consultation or deliberation with the international community, to intervene in Doge Land or to support either side of the conflict.
The World Forum Assembly hereby forwards the preparation to file a case at the International Court regarding the use of force by certain member states in Doge Land without international authorization.
The members of the World Forum shall implement light diplomatic and economic sanctions with a particular emphasis on military materials.
The contents of this resolution shall apply to all states and non-state actors in the past, present, and future who intervene in or support the conflict between the Ryccian junta and Doge Land. However, if this Assembly authorizes the use of force in said conflict, these measures shall not apply to any states that begin intervention following the adoption of such an authorization.
