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.

Believing that, while the resolution is well-intentioned, it contains several fatal flaws which severely hinder its ability to carry out its goals,

Alarmed by the resolution’s silence regarding the necessary extent of “assistance” to be provided to civilian aircraft in distress under Section 2c, allowing member nations to only provide minimal assistance to civilian aircraft in distress,

Saddened too that Section 4 permits member nations to render whatever “instructions” or “warning” they please, allowing a member nation to – for example – demand that a civilian aircraft surrender to military force as these “instructions”, thus defeating much of the mandate’s purpose,

Emphasising that, as resolutions cannot be amended, the only way to address these flaws is via repeal of the resolution, the World Assembly

Declares the “Civilian Aircraft Accord” to be repealed.
