United Nations Security Council
Turkey is destabilizing as the turmoil in Syria spills over the border. President Erdogan is slowly enforcing autocratic reform in Turkey and prominent Salafists are calling for bellicose actions but civil unrest is growing within urban centers. The PKK are steadily increasing insurgency activities within the country, aggravating the situation. Meanwhile, reports suggest a biological weapon has been armed by a terrorist cell within the region. The United Nations Security Council has been called to address and contain the growing unrest in the region in order to prevent it from exacerbating the Syrian conflict. Furthermore, the Security Council must attempt to prevent the detonation of a biological weapon in the region and draft a contingency plan should they fail. It is critical to enforce international norms against the use of biological weapons.
