The Coordinator announced that the draft “Report of the Coordinator to the Ad Hoc Committee” will be circulated at this session before it is submitted to the Plenary this afternoon. This narrative will review key points and areas of general agreement on text in Articles 4, 5, 6, and 7. It will make clear that everything discussed here will be subject to further consideration, and this is not a final text. The purpose of this document is to make it possible for delegations to pick up from where they leave off, avoid duplication of work at future informal meetings and to provide an accurate account of the negotiations. Any factual inaccuracies need to be brought to the attention of the Coordinator at this session.
