Vincent – ヴィンセント

Thank you everyone for visiting this blog. I am Vincent, a Malaysian who has been studying in Japan for the past 5 years. I had very little knowledge of the issue of “disarmament” prior to being offered the chance to take part in the Conference on Disarmament Issues. For this, I feel very lucky as this is my last year as a student and taking part in the “Special Session: World Student Peace Meeting” on the final day of the Conference represents an incredible opportunity.

Malaysia is a multiracial country in which the people enjoy the right to freedom of religion. Having grown up in such a lovely and peaceful country, and having had the chance to serve in the Malaysian National Service, I’ve come to appreciate the merits of military service, even in a peaceful country like Malaysia. After much debate and discussion with my fellow classmates, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of disarmament issues as well. Hearing the opinion of specialists from around the world at the Conference on Disarmament Issues will undoubtedly be a mind blowing experience from which I expect to learn much.

I will be blogging here on the 2nd day of the Conference. Stay tuned!

みなさん!軍縮会議のブログへようこそ。私はヴィンセントと申します。マレーシアからの留学生で、日本にきて5年目となりました。実は、この会議に参加する前に、’軍縮’という言葉を一度も聞いたことがありません。ちょうど3月に卒業しますが(卒業論文と発表が無事に終わればの話)、卒業する前に国連と関わるようなイベントに参加できて自分がとてもラッキーだと思っています。

マレーシアは多民族、多宗教の国であり、紛争もなく平和な国です。高校を出てからわずかではあるが、国の兵隊に参加しました。それをきっかけに兵隊のメリットや国への大切さを知ることができました。本会議に参加し、議論や新しいアイデアなどを聞いて、自分の勉強や成長の糧にもなると思うので、非常に楽しみにしています。

私は2日目からここにブログしますので、お楽しみにしてください!kuala_lumpur__the_capital_of_malaysia
