Juan Emilio de la Torre
Undersecretary of General Assembly
First and foremost welcome to the General Assembly, it is a great pleasure having you as part of this incredible committee.
I am sure we are about to embrace an amazing journey this next days, which hopefully will positively impact your life.
The General Assembly is a vital division of the United Nations; as a committee, it is the duty of the members to determine what resolutions fit best for the different global agendas, as well as reaching a resolution for your own topics.
As for DISEC, also known as the General Assembly's first committee, delegates must face global challenges and threats to the global peace, always seeking disarmament.
As a delegate of this branch of the UN, we expect you to meet the standards that the General Assembly implicitly has, experienced delegates are suited best for these committees.
During these days we will be establishing positions, debating and negotiating strategies in order to come up with the best resolutions for the topics at hand, everything virtually, which might appear as a challenge but I am sure that we will obtain lots of knowledge and benefits from this experience.
Quoting Alice Hocker: “Your greatness is not what you have, but what you give”, we expect you to give your best and greatness will come.
Looking forward to the event:
-Emilio de la Torre, Undersecretary for the General Assembly.

The dialogue along with the debates of all the participating countries will take you to reach great resolutions, which are necessary in these times.
