On 14 September 2009, IAEA Director General Mohammed ElBaradei told the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency that concerning Iran’s nuclear programme "a number of questions and allegations that cast doubt on the peaceful nature of that programme are still outstanding".
In order to ensure that these questions and allegations are answered and the Iran case may be closed, the Security Council has convened a Special Session on 20 November 2009 in Berlin. Together with Diplomats from Iraq, students from all departments are invited to represent the current Members of the Council.
