As reported by Reuters, the United States has asked on Monday, March 4, 2013 for the United Nations to ban drunk diplomats from future budget debates. The United States has become frustrated with the annual vote of the budget committee taking place amongst festive partying during the holiday season in December.
Sessions have turned into a mixture of budget talks along with partying.
The United Nations' Fifth Committee's annual vote is difficult enough. Add to it inebriated diplomats from 193 member states with long sessions of debating and the budget vote becomes an exhausting endeavor in order to reach results. Joseph Torsella, the deputy U.S. ambassador to the United Nations for management and reform, proposed to the General Assembly's budget committee "that the negotiating rooms should in future be an inebriation-free zone".
The show must go on; save the celebrating for after the final curtain.
People around the world depend on the United Nations to be the voices of reason. Just as a theatrical production requires all of the actors and crew to be on cue in order to present a fine polished performance, the United Nations' diplomats have a duty to their countries to be sober when it is time to vote on life important matters.
There will always be time for a party to rejoice after the applause accompanying the final vote. As Joseph Torsella pointed out, "let's save the champagne for toasting the successful end of the session, and do some credit to the Fifth Committee's reputation in the process".
Save the party to share with the world after thought provoking negotiations between sober nations have united with a final successful vote to truly be proud of. After the final bow turn up the music to celebrate and never be afraid to dance.
