World Assembly Resolutions

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 206
Repeal "Delineation of Borders Act"

Argument: The World Assembly,
AGREEING that border dispute arbitration is an issue of the utmost relevance and importance,
APPROVING of the ideas and intent behind the Delineation of Borders Act,
NOTING that the Delineation of Borders Act does little other than create a committee, GABDO, with no legal authority,

DEEPLY CONCERNED that the existence of the Delineation of Borders Act in its current state essentially blocks the creation of a body with some form of power which could help prevent unnecessary hardship and bloodshed as a result of disputes over borders,
REPEALS GA #117, Delineation of Borders Act.
