Ambassador Choi Hyuck (Korea)
G DECISION ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PARAGRAPH 6 OF THE DOHA DECLARATION ON THE TRIPS AGREEMENT AND PUBLIC HEALTH
192. Reverting to the statement made by the European Communities, calling for the preservation of the balance between the Decision and the Chairman's Statement and stating that the Chairman's Statement represented shared understandings of Members and context for the interpretation, the representative of India referred to a note from the Chairman of 27 August 2003 (JOB(03)/177). He said that he could not find any reference to the context for interpretation in the draft statement circulated in that document, and believed that reference was merely made at that time to the way in which the Decision should be interpreted and implemented. He wanted to clarify how this was going to be taken into account when addressing the question of preserving the balance.
