Ambassador Abdulhadi and the Embassy team received a group of Australian and International student delegates representing the National Capital Model United Nation (NCMUN) at the Embassy premises on Friday, September 30.
The National Capital Model United Nations (NCMUN) is a student-run Model UN conference. Inaugurated in 2014, the NCMUN consists of a wide range of speeches, committees, and socials.
The NCMUN delegates meet in organisations that span the globe – including committees in the UN system, Bretton Woods institutions, international courts, news rooms, and national cabinets – and they work together to find solutions to international challenges, learn and build their negotiation and problem solving skills, and meet like-minded studentsfrom different backgrounds, cultures, and fields of study.
The Ambassador welcomed the NCMUN delegates and briefed them on the current mandate and programs at the Palestinian Embassy. The Ambassador also discussed contemporary issues of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the current bilateral and multilateral relationship between Palestine and Australia.
The Embassy team answered the questions of the delegates, covering topics including the relationship between Palestine and the UN, Palestinian bilateral and multilateral diplomacy, the ability of the United Nations Security Council to solve the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the Palestinian internationalisation strategy.
The delegates expressed their appreciation for the visit, considering it to be highly informative as it deepened their knowledge of the root causes of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
