Repeal: “Civilian Aircraft Accord”

General Assembly Resolution #342 “Civilian Aircraft Accord” (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
APPLAUDS the good intentions of this assembly for recognizing that “it is the duty of all nations to protect the lives of innocent civilians”;
NOTING that this resolution was intended “to enact a sensible policy that allows for the safe and secure” oversight of civilian aircraft;
ALARMED that clause 2 section C requires member states to provide “Assistance to any civilian aircraft that declares itself to be in distress” even if there is sufficient evidence that the civilian aircraft is not in distress;
FURTHER alarmed that clause 2 section C requires member states to assist civilian aircraft in the airspace of potentially hostile neighbor nations airspace as long as it’s “within … communication range”;
REALIZINGclause 2 section C unintentionally opens up both member states military and civilian first responders to possible malicious enemy military action by requiring them to assist an enemy “civilian” aircraft potentially in hostile territory even if the call of distress is suspicious;
BELIEVING that by clause 2 section C requiring members to respond to all distress calls made by “civilian” aircraft within communication range, which could include hostile territory, this resolution has failed to enact a “sensible policy”;
HEREBY this Assembly REPEALS “Civilian Aircraft Accord”
