Committee: UNDOATopic: Foreign Bases
Country: Germany
Germany is seen as a headquarters to foreign bases. Germany holds the Ramstein Airbase,from where 40,000 US Soldiers were deployed to Afghanistan. We believe that this link 
 between countries is what gives the western powers the upper hand in the “War on Terror. We
see these foreign bases gives us a framework, where two countries military can join hands andstrive to achieve a single linked goal. We see foreign bases as a link not only in the area of warfare but also in the area of economics. NATO bases in Germany are viewed as essentialsto security to fight against terrorism and protect our country. German military officials areworking together with foreign military officials from the USA to invest into creatingGermany as centre to connect the European powers and US help regain political stability inthe region of Middle East. But, We would like the US military to think about plan to integratehigher levels of German forces in their bases, We believe that by doing this our forces achievenot only greater skills in the field but also friendly connections in the Military forces. Wewould like to further develop frameworks with powers such as the US to improve our 
government‟s policies towards the establishments of Foreign Bases.
Committee: UNODATopic: Foreign Military Bases
Country: Republic of Indonesia
Following the end of World War II, the world has seen how military bases have,through incidents such as the protection of civilians in Panama in 1998 and the forced retreatof Iraqi troops from Kuwait during the 1991 Gulf War, proved itself consistent in its one goal:international peace. Foreign military bases (FMBs) are invaluably advantageous in that theyhelp build up long-lasting political institutions, work as stable and reliable flows of 
information, and strongly maintain a foreign country‟s influence abroad. However, the
country of Indonesia acknowledges the fact that the key to the success of these FMBs lies inan effective and specific legal framework. Although Indonesia recognizes the flaws of FMBsand is deeply troubled by it, it has, and encourages other nations to, prioritize the welfare of its entire country in respects to national security and its foreign relations. Therefore, it urgesthe need for the enactment of system of regulations regarding FMBs that is impervious to theinfluence of powerful countries. Indonesia
‟s stance has already been expressed in the way that
its president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, while seeking to retain an even-handed foreign policy, has favored an increased U.S. presence in the South China Sea. It believes that thismay be the solution to the rising tension that is prevalent that region. With a military basechecking and analyzing the increasing conflicts of the country, it can help predict terrorist
activities as well as assist in maintaining a country‟s transparency. Indonesia believes t
hatforeign military bases allows each country to be responsible for its own sovereignty by setting proper regulations and agreements through SOFAs, its own safety by providing proper  protection, and its own transparency by allowing others to monitor activity, detect patternsand draw conclusions within the host country. It looks forward to working with other delegates towards a legal framework that will set regulations, provide boundaries and carryout uniform inspections on foreign military bases to ensur 
e the reaching of that base‟s
intended goals.
