Terrorist threat in Pakistan

Pakistan, being the sixth most–populous country in the world, is constantly stricken by waves of terrorism. The activity of several organizations has been officially acknowledged and, as each of them exhibits distinctive divergence in political and military aims, the complexity of this issue equally jeopardizes the security of Pakistan and the whole region. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan remains the most significant threat to the internal stability of the country. Having declared jihad against the Pakistani state it is relentlessly pursuing its vision of an Islamic system - targeting security forces and civilians alike.

Growing influence of ISIS complements the increasingly worrying vision of Pakistan. The Islamic State has already claimed responsibility for some of the assaults in Pakistan. The government’s stance is obscure and ambiguous, with its intelligence service allegedly financing The Haqqani Network – regional “nexus player” believed to be closely tied to Al-Qaeda and Pakistani Taliban. This threat rises as anti–state and state-sponsored militants are capable of endangering Afghanistan and India with cross-border attacks which could eventually lead to further exacerbation of already tense relations between the states. Pakistani nuclear weaponry shall also be considered a grave concern for the international community, as, with the terrorist threat growing in its ubiquity, this deadly arsenal becomes more susceptible to an illegal acquisition or unauthorized use.

We, as chairpersons, invite You to become honorable ambassadors to the United Nations Security Council for WrocMUN 2017 sessions and seek to implement novel strategies aimed at bringing long-awaited stability to Pakistan and diminishing the terrorist threat in the future. During the committee work, delegates will have a unique opportunity of contributing to solving this urgent issue in a professional but amicable atmosphere.
