The First Committee deals with disarmament, global challenges and threats to peace that affect the international community and seeks out solutions to the challenges in the international security regime.

The Korean War was a conflict between North and South Korea that went on for 3 years (25 June 1950- 27 July 1953). Communist North Korea was backed by the USSR and China, while the South Koreans had the support of the USA, Britain and other western-bloc countries, as well as the United Nations. The delegates are expected to find a way to end the conflict, and bring peace to the region.
