Message from the Secretary General

“ Diplomacy is more than saying or doing the right things at the right time,it is avoiding saying the or doing the wrong things at any time” – Bo Bennett.

It is with great pleasure that I invite all of you to the 11th session of Sri Lanka Model United Nations which will be held on the 31st of August to the 2nd of September 2018 at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall.

The theme for this year’s session is ‘Refining Global Diplomacy’. Diplomacy is the art and practice of conducting negotiations between representatives of states. Diplomacy has become nothing but a holding tactic for super powers and a way to curry favour for the smaller states. We believe diplomacy is about solutions and at SLMUN 2018 we aspire the next generation of Diplomats. High commissioners and foreign office functionaries who will strive to find solutions to the worlds ills through Diplomacy ,Debate and Compromise.

I am absolutely certain that everyone who takes part in SLMUN 2018 will have an incredible journey and on behalf of the Executive Committee of SLMUN 2018 I welcome everyone to Sri Lanka Model United Nations 2018.

Venuri Kalinga
Secretary General
