DISCLAIMER: THIS TRIVIAL EXERCISE IS NOT MEANT TO REPRESENT A REAL-LIFE APPLICATION. The intent is to give learners a hands-on experience that teaches the power of collaboration using Smartsettle ONE, while also thinking about an important real-life current issue inspired by UN disarmament Week. In this hypothetical scenario, Ukraine and Russia have come to a tentative agreement on ending the war in Ukraine using Smartsettle Infinity. The results are recorded here. However, their agreement is contingent on improving the START treaty by the USA and Russia both agreeing to reduce the treaty caps, restrictions and limits by a certain percentage by 2030. Russia says that they should reduce their arms by 90% but the USA isn't very interested. The USA says maybe 10%. Both countries have agreed to negotiate the reduction using Smartsettle ONE. They have also accepted that the UN will appoint Expert Neutrals for the END in case of an impasse. The issue is "reduction of nuclear arms by 2030". Both countries will reduce their nuclear arms by the agreed percentage before the deadline, with verification of progress every two months. China has already agreed to comply with the same reduction.
