Inter-Governmental Organization "IGO"

Diplomatic Relations in International Affairs

 

NAM 16th Summit Ministers Working Session

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is a union of States, united by sovereignty, human rights and humanitarian missions, established as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO).  As an IGO, it serves as an instrumentality for external affairs of its collective of Member States, thus exercising sovereign statehood under international law, thereby possessing inherent official capacity for diplomatic relations.

 

To best implement its core missions, IVU quietly maintains a discrete network of diplomatic representation, through both official and unofficial channels.

 

IVU engages in diplomatic relations with other inter-governmental organizations (IGO), including the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), Royal Alliance of Independent States (RAIS), and United Kingdoms of Afrika (UKA).  It primarily engages in bilateral diplomatic relations with a wide range of individual sovereign States, both territorial and non-territorial.

 

Infrastructure Supporting the Non-Aligned Movement

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), by its very name, is defined as the alliance of Member States which is “not aligned” with dominant countries and centralized collective treaty organizations, and is driven by the inspired political force which characterizes a “movement”.  The “Principle of Non-Alignment” is thus to preserve political independence and national sovereignty, which is necessary for human rights.

 

The NAM alliance was founded based upon the “Bandung Conference” in Indonesia in 1955, hosted by President Soekarno, and was established in 1961 by the Presidents of Indonesia (Soekarno), Egypt (Nasser), Ghana (Nkrumah), India (Nehru) and Yugoslavia (Tito).

 

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) was designed as a diplomatic forum for “consultation of participating countries”, facilitating cooperation through “bilateral arrangements” with individual States, to prevent any dominating influence (1955 Bandung Conference, A-4, A-12).  It thus operates as a decentralized organization without hierarchy, avoiding any central geographic headquarters, managed by each of its Member States on a rotating basis, changing the host country every three years.

 

The Presidency of NAM is passed on to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of each country which becomes the next host State.  Its Coordinating Bureau concentrates on promoting unified actions by non-aligned countries in the United Nations (UN).

 

Power to Overturn UN Policy – The NAM is comprised of 120 Member States, supported by 17 Observer States, together constituting a “super-majority” of 71% of the UN General Assembly.  This surpasses the two-thirds vote needed to either block or secure ratification of any major decisions in the UN.  It also allows the NAM countries to overcome the infamous Veto Power of permanent members of the UN Security Council, by exercising a little known and much overlooked provision, enshrined in conventional international law:

 

The UN Resolution 377 Uniting for Peace of 1950 establishes that any “failure of the Security Council… does not deprive the General Assembly of its rights” to intervene (Preamble: ¶ 7-8), and specifically empowers the General Assembly to override the Security Council for any “lack of unanimity” including by Veto Power (Article 1).

 

Therefore, whenever the NAM is activated by a compelling cause, it can mobilize its collective will as the most formidable geopolitical block, capable of overturning even the most entrenched dominant influences within the United Nations.  This is the “silent majority” and “controlling voting block” of free and independent countries, the leaders of the true “free world” of the real “international community”, determined to uphold human rights by defending the necessary sovereignty of States.

 

The Non-Aligned Policies – The founding purpose of the NAM alliance is to support “emerging nationalist forces” rejecting “neo-colonialism” by dominant States, and upholding “freedom [and] prosperity” (1961 NAM 1st Summit Declaration, Preamble: ¶3).

 

The NAM alliance declares that the increasing trend of “disregard of international law” violating human rights is “caused mostly by the geopolitical interests of the great centers of power”, imposing the “neo-colonialism” of the modern ideology of Globalism (2016 NAM 17th Summit Declaration, Preamble: ¶2).

 

It thus mandates “the fight against” that globalist “neo-colonialism”, defined as “all forms of foreign domination or hegemony” (Preamble: Point 3).

 

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) engages in diplomatic relations as an IGO by providing its official infrastructure resources as institutional support, serving as a vehicle for practical implementation of the policies of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).  IVU also participates in the NAM alliance network, in both formal and alternative channels, through its appointed Ambassadors from time to time, assisting and cooperating with various NAM Member States.

 

Replacing the Failing United Nations System

 

United Nations Human Rights Council Working Session

The United Nations (UN) was established in 1945, constituted by 193 territorial countries.  The UN has the political weight of all its perceived power and influence, precisely and solely because it was formed as an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO).

 

IVU Same Status as UN – Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is also properly established as an IGO, by a constitutional Charter of sovereign Member States.  Thus, by binding force and effect of international law, IVU has exactly the same legal status, official powers and authorities as the UN:

 

In conventional law, an “inter-governmental organization” (IGO) is also called an “international organization” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 1(i)), included among “States and other subjects of international law” (Article 3), with power to enter into “Treaties” as a type of sovereign State (Article 5);

 

By the “principle of sovereign equality of States” (1970 Cooperation of States, 6th Principle), “All States are juridically [legally] equal”, specifically including “international organizations [IGO’s]” (1974 Economic Rights of States, Article 10).  Therefore, the legal status of IVU as an IGO is equal to that of the UN.

 

Independence from the UN – The United Nations (UN) is not a “world government”, and has no authority for any type of “global governance”:  The UN is prohibited to interfere with self-determination of peoples or sovereignty of States (UN Charter, Articles 1.2, 2.1, 2.7).

 

The UN is not a “world parliament”, and has no authority to enact any form of “legislation”:  The UN General Assembly (GA) is only a forum for States to codify and declare general recognition of rights and doctrines of international law (UN Charter, Article 13.1).

 

The UN has increasingly discredited itself, repeatedly being exposed for its actions, progressively undermining the same human rights and rule of law which it claims to represent.  In connection with this persistent advancement of negative agendas from dominant political factions, the UN is fully liable for any of its own violations of international law and rights (2012 Declaration on Rule of Law, Article 2).

 

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) serves as a meaningful alternative to the UN, for free and independent States to benefit from the full protections of real international law, restoring and preserving their national sovereignty and human rights of their peoples.

 

IVU exercises its independent official status as an IGO by engaging in bilateral diplomatic relations with individual States, in both formal and alternative channels, through its appointed Ambassadors from time to time, assisting and cooperating with various UN Member States separately from that globalist system.

 

Rejecting the Failing European Union System

 

European Union Parliament Session

The European Union (EU), originally formed as the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1958, was established in 1993 as a treaty organization, which is limited by its “Charter of Fundamental Rights”, and governed by the “Lisbon Treaties” of 2009.  It thus does not have the status or authorities of an IGO, but rather is a centralized system of binding collective treaties.

 

Governance Over States – The European Commission, which initiates and controls all draft legislation, budgets and funding, is comprised of unelected Commissioners, who are nominated by the country governments, but selected and appointed by the President of the Commission.

 

Half of the EU legislature is the Council of Ministers, comprised of unelected government Ministers appointed by each country, which also has executive functions for foreign policy and security.

 

The other half of the legislature is the European Parliament, whose members are elected by EU citizens by proportional representation of the countries.  The elected Parliament must ratify any new legislation, but it can only approve of draft legislation issued by the unelected Commission.

 

While the EU does enact supra-national legislation as a treaty organization, any legislative act which exceeds or violates the Charter of Rights or Lisbon Treaties are invalid, and can be overturned by the EU Court of Justice, and thus could also be nullified by other international Courts of universal jurisdiction.

 

Limitations on EU Authority – The Lisbon Treaty on European Union mandates “respect for the principles of the United Nations Charter” (EU Treaty, Article 3.5), which in turn guarantees “self-determination of peoples”, “sovereign equality” of States, and non-intervention in sovereign “domestic jurisdiction” of states (UN Charter, Articles 1.2, 2.1, 2.7).  The EU is restricted to act “only within the limits of the competences conferred upon it by the member states in the Treaties” (EU Treaty, Articles 3.6, 5.2), and all EU actions “shall not exceed what is necessary to achieve the objectives of the Treaties” (Article 5.4).

 

Two-Year Exit from the EU – The EU Treaty guarantees that “any member state may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements” (Article 50.1), and only needs to “notify the European Council of its intention” (Article 50.2).  “The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State… from the date of… withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification” (Article 50.3).

 

Immediate Exit from the EU – The 1969 Convention on the Law of Treaties declares that “the principles of free consent and of good faith… are universally recognized” as the basis for validity of all treaties, which must be governed by “the principles of justice and international law”, ensuring “self-determination of peoples” and the sovereign “independence of all States” (Preamble).  Therefore, any attempt to use a treaty to undermine or usurp the sovereignty of a State, or to coerce a State not to withdraw, would automatically invalidate the treaty with respect to that State, allowing it to withdraw immediately.

 

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) serves as a meaningful alternative to the EU, for free and independent States to benefit from the full development of real economic collaboration, upholding their national sovereignty, socio-political and economic human rights of their peoples.

 

IVU exercises its independent official status as an IGO by engaging in bilateral diplomatic relations with individual States, in both formal and alternative channels, through its appointed Ambassadors from time to time, assisting and cooperating with various EU countries separately from that globalist system.

 

Independence of Humanitarian Policies

 

Ignita Veritas United (IVU) strictly preserves its sovereignty as an IGO institution, to protect the integrity and purpose of its humanitarian policies.  Its Charter dedicates the institution to unequivocal founding principles of human rights and the rule of law, and establishes that all Member States of IVU and its Official Bodies must support the founding missions of the IGO.  This legally invalidates and nullifies any potential claim of any dominant influence, and ensures faithful adherence to its genuine purposes for the benefit of humanity.

 

Under conventional international law, Nation States become Member States of an inter-governmental organization (IGO) specifically by “ratification”, “acceptance”, and “accession” to its Charter (1969 Law of Treaties, Articles 2.1(b), 11, 16).  Accordingly, Member States adhere to and support the chartered principles and missions of the IGO, as publicly established by its founding “negotiating states” (Articles 2.1(e), 25.1).

 

The IVU Charter declares:  “Any domestic or foreign policies, operations or actions of a Member State which demonstrably serve to systematically undermine or violate fundamental principles of international law or human rights, may result in disqualification” (IVU, Sovereign Charter, Article 14.7);  “For any failure or violation… establishing reason for disqualification, Member  State status may be suspended [or] revoked” (Article 14.8).

 

Legal Notices on Sovereign Diplomatic Status

 

IVU-IGO Passport (500)Ignita Veritas United (IVU) is an Inter-Governmental Organization (IGO) as an “instrumentality” for the “exercise of sovereign authority” of its Member States, thus possessing autonomous statehood (2004 Immunities of States, Article 2.1(b)(iii), Article 5), as a joint government conducting the “external affairs of States” (1981 Internal Affairs of States, Preamble: ¶7; Article 1), holding full sovereignty of a “State”, as a “subject of international law” (1969 Law of Treaties, Article 3), as a non-territorial state (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Articles 1(i), 23.1, 30.1).

 

Diplomatic status is invoked with all privileges and immunities by presenting “Diplomatic Credentials” as issued (1961 Diplomatic Relations, Article 13), exempt from accreditation or embassy registration (1961 Diplomatic, Articles 1(i), 3.1(a)), without requirement of a consular post (1963 Consular Relations, Articles 3, 1(d), 17.1), regardless of recognition (1969 Law of Treaties, Articles 3, 38).  IGO Officers do not engage in commerce, retaining full immunities (1963 Consular, Article 57).  Immunities fully apply by the fact of sovereignty alone (1961 Diplomatic, Articles 22-36; 1963 Consular, Articles 40-57).  High Officials and the Directorate General hold absolute immunity regardless of scope of functions (2002 ICJ Congo v. Belgium, §§ 51-55).
