  2. Galatea shall ratify and accept all United Nations treaties, charters, declarations, and obligations.
§2 - North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Membership

mate did you even read what you linked

"Now that Galatea has applied to join the United Nations and signed the UN Charter, the next step for membership is for the Senate to ratify the Charter. After that, it’s up to the UN’s Security Council and General Assembly, though Galatea is wildly expected to be admitted by a safe margin."

We've already applied and ratified the Charter. The only thing remaining is for the admins to tell us whether we're in or not.

"Now that Galatea has applied to join the United Nations and signed the UN Charter, the next step for membership is for the Senate to ratify the Charter. After that, it’s up to the UN’s Security Council and General Assembly, though Galatea is wildly expected to be admitted by a safe margin."

We've already applied and ratified the Charter. The only thing remaining is for the admins to tell us whether we're in or not.

Ah, I misunderstood. Is it okay if I alter it to say something like "The Senate ratifies the United Nations Charter"?

Consider the application successful. I'll write up something a bit more formal within the next couple days.

Ok coming back to this - I actually don't have the time. I'll post the informal acceptance in the lobby.

BE IT THEREFORE ENACTED, as follows:



§1 - United Nations (UN) Membership
  1. Galatea shall apply for membership in the United Nations.
  2. Galatea shall ratify and accept all United Nations treaties, charters, declarations, and obligations.
§2 - North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Membership
  1. Galatea shall apply for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
  2. Galatea shall ratify and accept all NATO treaties, charters, declarations, and obligations.
§3 - Recognized States
  1. The government of Galatea shall recognize the following states:
    1. All member states of the United Nations.
    2. All nonmember observer states of the United Nations.

A basic bill for admission into the UN, NATO, and recognizing foreign countries. This could actually be interesting because NATO membership and recognition of Palestine are controversial.


Sponsored by Alfred Steinburg [DP], but would recommend (as my colleagues have stated above) removing the UN part, at it already seems to have been settled.

A bill to try to end/annul conflict of Israel/Palestine. Especially with the recent proposal of the Israel Condemnation Motion, this act should act as a compromise between the two sides of this debate.

Yeah, I tried to word it in §5 that this is what Galatea would want to happen. (i.e. official foreign policy)
