The most prestigious Model United Nations conference of the country, Dhaka University National Model United Nations 2015 has been inaugurated by the honourable vice-chancellor of the university, professor AAMS Arefin Siddique yesterday at Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Bhaban.

The Secretary General of the conference, Wahiduzzaman Siddique, was also present in the ceremony.
Professor Siddique expressed his respect to the martyrs of the Liberation War of Bangladesh by stating, “Pakistan has come up with a false statement that there was no genocide in 1971, which is a ‘white lie’. So the university has already cut their ties with Pakistan for the sake of truth.”
Nahim Razzak MP said that Bangladesh has a ‘population dividend’ so he is trying to unite the youths of the nation in one platform, Young Bangla, to convert this youth population into resource.
Later on Wahiduzzaman Siddique recalled the role of DUMUNA of the last four years and wished a grand success of the conference. DUNMUN 2015 will last four days from December 21 to December 24 under the theme, “Destination 2030: Treasuring the present for shaping the future.”
